Camair Co restructures operations

Camair-Co (QC, Douala) terminated scheduled passenger flights to Paris CDG, France, on Friday, September 30 citing a network restructuring exercise.

It already serves Garoua, Maroua, N'Gaoundéré, and Yaoundé Nsimalen using its MA-60 and B737-700 fleets.

Aside from France, Camair-Co also serves the Central African Republic, Congo (Brazzaville), Congo (Kinshasa), Nigeria, Senegal, Benin, Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Chad.
