He described Lagos as the economic route of Camair-Co, adding that the two countries were “witnessing together a new benchmark, a new landmark.”
The Consul General added that the presence of Camair-Co in Nigeria would further enhance the relationship between the two countries, stressing that this would boost the trade, commercial and social-cultural events.
Agnes Ndikum, Camair-Co Nigeria Country Manager, reiterated the determination of the airline to continuously serve the Lagos-Doula route.
She said: “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 re-launch of the Lagos-Doula route a reality.”
Also, Chike Ohiagu, General Manager, APG Nigeria, the airline returned to the country to stay.
He insisted that the airline was determined to make sure the airline seats were full and profitable.
Also speaking at the event, the aircraft pilot, Captain Kono Bihina Constant, expressed his delight to return to Nigeria after a long while.
