Cameroon Airlines Corporation (Camair-Co) has resumed flight to Lagos, Nigeria, starting recently on 23rd June this year when the Cameroonian flag carrier arrived from Douala after some years of absence from the route.
At the welcoming ceremony at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ekorong A. Dong, the Consul General of Cameroon in Lagos, expressed delight to see Camair-Co back to the economic route of Douala-Lagos,
“Today we are witnessing together a new benchmark, a new landmark between Nigeria and Cameroon.”
The Consul General added that the presence of Camair-Co in Nigeria would further enhance the relationship between the two countries.
“This will boost the trade, commercial and social-cultural events between our countries,” he stressed.
Agnes Ndikum, Camair-Co Nigeria country manager, reinstated the determination of the airline to continuously serve the Lagos-Doula route.
“Let me state here that Camair-Co is finally here to stay and provide quality air travel between Nigeria and Cameroon. We appreciate the efforts of APG Nigeria, our general sales agent (GSA) for their continuous support in making this relaunch of the Lagos-Doula route a reality,” she emphasised.
According to Chike Ohiagu, general manager APG Nigeria, “the airline is here to stay. We are determined to make sure the airline seats are full and profitable.”
Also speaking at the event, Captain Kono Bihina Constant, the aircraft pilot, said he was delighted to return to Nigeria after a long while.
“We haven’t flown into Nigeria for a long time. Nigeria is so advanced when it comes to aviation, and we are very pleased to be back here. Camair-Co is working so hard round the clock to ensure travellers rely on our airline and not to go elsewhere,” he stated.
Camair-Co is scheduled to operate Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with a Boeing B737 between Douala and Lagos.
