(Business in Cameroon) - On July 8, 2019, travellers embarking or landing at Douala international airport should have noticed the absence of policemen and customs at various airport security posts.

In fact, they have been replaced by agents of the safety division newly created by the aviation authority in application of the presidential decree of January 8, 2019. This decree approved the implementation of a civil aviation security programme (Programme national de sûreté de l’aviation civile du Cameroun-PNSAC).

According to an official from the aviation authority, the policemen and customs officials are not leaving the airport. They will instead devote themselves to the tasks entrusted to them by the decree.

The new regulation provides that additional screenings usually performed by carriers should henceforth be conducted at screening windows at the entrance of departure lounges.
