(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian Civil Aviation (Ccaa) announced further investments to develop secondary airports to improve domestic services. The plan covers the deployment and commissioning of equipment required to operate the infrastructures.

Under the strategy, the airports of Ngaoundéré (in Adamaoua), Bafoussam and Bertoua were equipped. At Bafoussam and Bertoua, equipment includes two inverters, protection cabinets, new generation recorders with sixteen analogue and eight digital channels. In addition, the control tower was granted a control console, intercom, two portable VHF units, a recorder and a security intercom.

The new equipment will help the airports operate more efficiently. They are a guarantee for flight safety as the air traffic controllers at Bertoua and Bafoussam airports will now be better equipped to ensure the fluidity of flights,” Ccca said. The next step once the airport development is completed will be to enhance the human capital at the three airports.

According to Aéroports du Cameroun which is charged with airport management, Cameroon’s airports welcomed 1.14 million passengers between January and November 2017. A figure that can further increase, according to Ccaa.
