Should a flight be cancelled the normal procedure is to lock the offices and representatives go home leaving 100's to wonder when the next one will be. - Dande
"Garoua airport has a lot to offer sunseekers during the day because you can sit outside and enjoy the glorious Cameroon sunshine other than that it has only the bare essentials. Being the only airport in North Cameroon and servicing only CAMEROON AIRLINE flights you are not the customer - they are doing you a favour. Should a flight be cancelled the normal procedure is to lock the offices and representatives go home (sometimes they write it on a chalkboard)leaving 100's to wonder when the next one will be. The advice is, do not leave your luggage unattended (theft), get as close to checkin as possible (there is only the floor to sleep on anyway) because there will be 2 flight loads next day and flight booking does not guarantee a seat and queuing is not normal, make sure you have drinking water and don't be afraid to argue and shout for your place.If you find yourself on any flight within Cameroon consider going via the larger independent bus companies were you are quaranteed travel and a seat.
