(Business in Cameroon) - For some days now, many televisions have been continually broadcasting a message from Camair-Co, informing Cameroonians that the public airline company transported 235,686 passengers in 2017. Compared to the numbers of travelers in 2016, this represents an increase of 94%.

The company explained that this performance was due to numerous efforts they made in 2017. First, they acquired five new planes, a 767-300 (le Dja), two new generation 737-700 and two MA-60. Then, they covered more regions in Cameroon (it now flies to 8 out of the 10 regions in the country) by increasing the frequency of weekly flights from 70 to 100.

Finally, since October 27, 2017, the company has been conquering the African sky. It now flies to Dakar (Senegal), Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), N’djamena (Chad) and Bangui (Central Africa). Thanks to these investments, the company was able to reduce its monthly deficit from CFA2 billion to CFA62 million between 2016 and 2017.
