Cameroon Airlines Corporation (CAMAIR-Co) is a brand new, yet old airline that just started service last month in Africa.
Camair Version 1.0 was founded in 1971 and wasÂ headquarteredÂ out of Douala, Cameroon. The airline was owned 96.43% by the CameroonÂ GovernmentÂ and 3.57% by Air France. The airline had difficulty and stoppedÂ service in 2008.
Camair Version 2.0 was founded in 2006 before version 1.0 officially went under, but never started operations. The first flight of the new Camair just occurred on March 28, 2011 from Douala to Paris. Camair currently has a fleet of one Boeing 767-300 ER (TJ-CAC) and one Boeing 737-700.
The new airline was created by a decree of the President and he hopes it becomes an inspiration to other airlines in Africa. The new airline has a much cleaner livery than the old Camair livery. Although I am a fan of the classicÂ cheat-lineÂ look, the Euro-white body with colorful tail always looks good.
