(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon has already implemented four of the eight measures required to join the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM), a project aimed at liberalising air transport in Africa. This was revealed by the country’s civil aviation authority CCAA.

The authority indicates that the measures implemented are namely: publication of a notice in the written press to inform the public of its adhesion to the SAATM; notification to other member countries; its aviation agreements’ harmonization with the Yamoussoukro agreement, and the appointment of a focal point.   

For the remaining measures, an implementation plan has been elaborated and will be finalized as soon as possible. This plan will help Cameroon efficiently take part in the success of the single market.

CCAA indicates that this single market could boost air services by 75% and reduce ticket prices by 25-35%, making air travel accessible to more than 5 million travellers in the 12 countries on this market.
