(Business in Cameroon) - On July 8, 2019, Cameroon will start the progressive transfer of some of the police forces’ competencies to the special security unit (ASU) of Douala international airport. These are namely services related to passengers, luggage, access and vehicles' checks and screening.
Paul Assoumou Koki, general director of the aviation authority, explains that this transfer falls within the framework of the integrated project aimed at improving security in Cameroonian airports Piasac. She adds that security forces should rely on ASU for apprehension and inspection of security breaches.
It is also revealed that additional searches conducted by airline companies would henceforth be done at the single screening windows located at the entrance of boarding lounges.
