(Business in Cameroon) - Aéroports du Cameroun (ADC), the national airports’ management company announced it is renovating the Yaoundé-Nsimalen airport to comply with the specifications of the African Football Federation (CAF) in preparation for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

In detail, infrastructures will be upgraded to provide for the suitable comfort of official delegations and airport passengers during the event (June-July). “There is no more low iron chairs in waiting areas. We planned comfortable black airport chairs with grey armrests out of which 2,000 are already installed and we are waiting for 2,000 others. All rooms are equipped with new monitors that constantly screen security information, flights, customs, etc.,” ADC informed adding that duty free shops are also being developed.

In addition, in collaboration with the police and customs services, ADC is considering the creation of corridors for airport formalities, sorting, screening and baggage handling. 800 carts have been acquired and the airport already has a fully functioning ventilation system.

“In the coming months, we are planning the refurbishment of escalators, the eight elevators, the refreshing of the paint and the acquisition of new equipment. As well, the runway is now ready to accommodate any aircraft type on an aircraft tarmac,” the company indicated.
