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

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Garoua International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A tiny, dated single-terminal airport served only by a few Camair Co regional flights. Minimal shopping and dining options available.
  • Notice written on a chalkboard, or no notice at all, when a flight is cancelled. The airport staff just shuts down the office and goes home.
  • Be assertive when dealing with flight re-booking arrangements. If you are flying to a destination within Cameroon, and your flight has been cancelled, one reviewer suggests booking a ticket with an independent bus company as a reliable alternative to reaching your destination.
  • There are reports of extortion by airport security.
