Domestic flights in Cameroon are ensured by the national company, Cameroon Airlines Corporation (CAMAIR-CO). It should be mentioned that air transport is the easiest way of travelling between Southern and Northern Cameroon. In fact, the journey by road is too long and the road security is not guaranteed because of the daily numerous traffic accidents in Cameroon despite the road speed control implemented by the government.  The The CAMAIR website can be found here.
