After spending six months in Ethiopia for maintenance and unpaid bills, Camair Co’s Boeing 767 landed in Douala on Saturday July the 2nd. The Boeing code named the Dja was flown to Addis Ababa for repairs but had to stay put for a six months period because Camair Co was unable to pay for the technical maintenance work. A source who sued for anonymity told Cameroon Concord News that it needed the intervention of the Minister of Transport for the Ethiopian authorities to release the plane.
Welcoming the crew at the Douala International airport, the general manager of Camair Co, Nana Sandjo, assisted by members of his staff said the Boeing 767 was ready for business, “everything was refurbished. It can resume flying.” Nana Sandjo added that, “There is just some small checks to be done in Cameroon and Camair-Co, as well as paperwork.” The Dja has a 220 passenger capacity.
