The flight was preceded by two CAMAIR-CO flights from Douala. It was a large crowd consisting of political, administrative, religious and traditional authorities, elites from the Northwest region in attendance to witness the event that was rich in sounds and colours.

During this ceremony, the Minister of Transport urged ADC S.A and CCAA respectively to assure maintenance of airport equipment and infrastructure and to ensure the safety and security of the airspace that enlarges the domestic services of CAMAIR-CO.
