Cameroon – Transport: Four planes of the Cameroon Airlines Corporation grounded due to breakdown and unpaid bills

Written by Deckson N.

Since last week, the fleet of the company has only one aircraft, a Boeing 737 on rental.

The appointment of a new management team at the head of the Cameroon Airlines Corporation (CAMAIR-CO) has so far not resolved in the situation within the national airline company. Looks rather that the situation will be worse. Unfortunately, the gloomy picture painted by the company led by Ernest Dikoum is apparently far from over.

Since last week, the fleet of the company has only one aircraft, a Boeing 737 on rental. The second unit of the same type is blocked in South Africa for unpaid bills for approximately two billion FCFA. The two MA-60 are also out of services. The Boieng Dja-767 for its part is also down and under threat of seizure by the owner of the two engines, still for unpaid bills. At the end, there are four planes grounded for technical issues or unpaid bills, said Le Messager of Monday, October 31, 2016.

According to an inside source to the enterprise, “two of the five planes are flying. A week ago, a single aircraft was available. The reasons are many. They range from maintenance to unpaid bills, “said the newspaper.

Moreover, some observers attribute this “failure” to the wrong team headed by Mefiro Oumarou, the chairman of the Board of CAMAIR-CO. And because the new troop leader found the Boieng stimulus plan unrealistic and inapplicable. According to sources, former employees recruited by the accompany for the said plan because of their proven expertise were simply sacked without any reason.
