“We are proud to welcome the flag carrier of Cameroon to the worldwide family of Q400 operators, and look forward to helping Camair-Co further enhance its offering and services on regional routes,” said Jean-Paul Boutibou, Vice President, Sales, Middle-East and Africa, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Communities around the world benefit from the Q400’s unique operational flexibility and superior performance capabilities. The challenging African climate requires high-performing aircraft, and the recent upswing in Q400 orders from the region is a clear indication that our turboprop is cementing its position as the most preferred one.”
Camair-Co’s Q400 is configured with 78-seats and will serve domestic routes: Ngaoundere, Garoua, Maroua, Douala and Yaounde. Bangui and Lagos as regional routes.
“We are excited about this new addition to Camair-Co’s fleet. With its outstanding economics, comfort and operational flexibility in Africa’s hot and diverse landscape, the Q400 represents the ideal growth solution for our portfolio,” said Ernest Dikoum, CEO, Camair-Co. “This is the right aircraft for our regional operations, and for the people of Cameroon. As the leading turboprop in Africa, it will allow us to increase our domestic connectivity, as well as bringing communities closer with high frequency services within Cameroon and neighboring countries.”
