“On its last trip, a mouse that escaped from the bag of a passenger seeped into the unit, we had to absolutely extract it before putting the plane in circulation. Unfortunately, these works took more than expected and the Maroua airport can not yet accommodate night flights “said Tanko.
Cameroon Tribune reports that as workarounds, passengers were housed for the night of Thursday at Camair-Co. And very early on Friday morning, they were taken overland to Garoua, where the Boeing 737 was waiting for them. For the head of call, there was more fear than harm, as he explains,
“this kind of situation happens very often, but for this case, our passengers were understanding, calm and cooperative, That is why everything is back to normal. “
The flight schedules resumed normally since Saturday when a flight actually departed from the the Maroua-Salak International Airport.
