CAMAIR CO Take-off Imminent

Discussions are underway between stakeholders of the new air carrier and officials of Boeing company on how to either buy or lease planes. Efforts are underway in the country to effectively take the new air company, CAMAIR CO, off the ground. Stakeholders of the new air carrier yesterday Monday September 7 held

discussions with officials of the Boeing company. Their discussions, among others, centred on the modalities of either leasing or buying aircraft that the outfit would use when it goes operational. A delegation of the Boeing company led by Skip H. Thompson arrived in Cameroon on Sunday September 6 and was yesterday received in audience by the Minister of State, Minister for Transport, Bello Bouba Maigari. They were also scheduled to pay a courtesy call to the General Manager of the Country??s Civil Aviation Authority, held a working session with the Chairman of the Board of Directors of CAMAIR CO and other CAMAIR CO administrators and other experts before taking off in the evening. Though Skip H. Thompson and his team declined talking to the press, the Minister of State disclosed that the former air carrier, CAMAIR, had always worked with Boeing company and that CAMAIR CO could not but continue in that direction. ??All our pilots have been trained in Boeing technologies as well as our maintenance technicians??, Bello Bouba Maigari said, adding that, ??we would like to continue this partnership with Boeing company which would not only save us time but also money??. The Minister of State said to take CAMAIR CO off the ground, there is need for aircraft and that instead of going through intermediaries, it is far better to go straight to the manufacturer. Reason why, he said, they requested officials of Boeing company for yesterday??s working session. He said besides exploring possibilities of acquiring aircrafts, stakeholders of CAMAIR CO are equally reflecting on how pilots and other technicians could be sent for retraining. This, he said, is because technology is continually improving and there are new generations of aircraft. On when the air carrier could effectively go operational, the Minister of State said, all is being done for it to hit the air in no distant future. He said the Board of Directors is leaving nothing to chance to ensure the effective take off of the outfit.
