The Cameroonian Minister of Transport, His Excellency Jean Ernest Masséna NGALLE BIBEHE, and His Excellency Merzak BEDJAOUI Ambassador of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria to the Republic of Cameroon signed this agreement for their respective countries on 24 February 2021 in Yaounde.
The agreement signed revises the 1974 agreement and will strengthen and consolidate bilateral relations between the two States, which will give impetus to the operation of direct commercial flights. A direct flight line will thus soon be established from Algiers linking Yaounde and Douala. This will facilitate travel and strengthen the development of trade and tourism via their respective airports.
The two signatories have expressed satisfaction that the airlines of both countries will cease to operate the agreement.
Other dignitaries present at the signing ceremony included the Minister Delegate to the Minister of Transport, the Minister Delegate to the Minister of External Relations in charge of Cooperation with the Islamic World, the Directors General of the Cameroon Civil Aviation Authority (CCAA) and Cameroon Airports (ADC).
