The Sans Detour newspaper edition of June 13, 2016 informs us that Edgar Alain MebeNgo’o, the Minister of Transport (MINTRANSPORT) with an inter-ministerial delegation visited Toronto and Montrealon the instructions of the President of the Republic ” at the Bombardier, a Canadian aircraft manufacturer. The objective of this working visit was, according to the weekly, “to enable the acquisition of aircraft to strengthen the fleet of the airline.

It must be said that last March the MINTRANSPORT granted an audience to René Cremonese the High Commissioner of Canada to Cameroon. According to sources faced by the newspaper, “it was for the Canadian diplomat to discuss the contribution of the Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier, who is ready to provide  Cameroon with aircraft for short distances adapted to the needs of the national airline for domestic flights. Since the company has a fleet limited to 3 aircraft with a workforce that are considered overcrowded. ” The diplomat, we learn had also put emphasis on the fact that the Canadian company will offer short-term commercial aircraft and business to Camair-Co.

To recall our memory, on 15 December 2015, the national airline Camair-Co signed a contract with the American firm Boeing consulting. It was a technical partnership agreement for the development of a business plan.

To speak of the Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier, it should be noted that they just signed with Air Canada a letter of intent for the sale of 45 CSeries 300 aircraft. According to the newspaper, this is the largest order received for the CSeries aircraft and the first since September 2014.
