The Cameroon Airlines Corporation, trading as Camair-Co, is an airline from Cameroon, serving as flag carrier of the country, a role which was previously filled by the now-defunct Cameroon Airlines.[1] Camair-Co has its headquarters in the Immeuble La Rotonde in Douala,[2] and operates out of Douala International Airport.[3]


Camair-co was created on 11 September 2006 by decree of Paul Biya, the President of Cameroon, as a company aimed at replacing Cameroon Airlines, the country's national airline at that time. Cameroon Airlines was shut down in June 2008,[4] but it took until 2011 for Camair-Co to launch flight services. The inaugural flight from Douala to Paris via Yaoundé took place on 28 March.[5]

The IATA code QC previously belonged to Air Corridor, which has since ceased operations.
