In the space of a week, two missions of senior police officers investigated the management of the new CEO of the company.

According to Le Messager of Tuesday 3 January 2017, two police missions dispatched by the Presidency of the Republic carried out a descent to Cameroon Airlines Corporation (Camair-Co). These missions which took place between 10 and 20 December 2016 had as main objective to investigate the management of the new Director General of the national airline, Ernest Dikoum.

Indeed, maintenance and air operations managers, including the DM of Camair-Co, were cooked by the investigators on the hiring of a 60-seat propeller aircraft and the market Repair of the two engines of Boieng 767 TJ-CA the “Dja“. Added to this, the causes of the immobilization of the entire fleet of the national airline.

According to the newspaper, for more than three weeks, the two MA60 aircraft, the B767 and the two B737 are out of operation. Moreover, Ernest Dikoum, against the advice of technical managers and air operations, would have chosen to hire a 60-seat aircraft for the African Cup of Nations recently organized in Cameroon. This for the trifle amount of 3250 US dollars per block hour, more than two billion FCFA.

Information that quickly set fire to the side of the unionists, who, at a meeting held on December 14, 2016, would have expressed dissatisfaction with the cost of renting this airplane considered exorbitant, notwithstanding the Period of wage shortage.

We are convinced that on the market, the cost of this type of aircraft does not exceed 1750 dollars per block hour (about 1 billion two hundred million CFA francs),” explain the trade unionists. In the management of the Camair-Co, all attempts to glean much clarification on this subject proved futile, we can read in the newspaper.
