The Cameroonian Embassy in France announces the resumption of Air France commercial flights with the first rotation from Paris to Yaoundé-Nsimalen for Monday 25 May 2020.
The press release signed on 21 May by the acting chargé d'affaires, Antoine Ahmadou, informs "Cameroonian nationals and foreigners residing in Cameroon and still awaiting repatriation from France," who wish to board this flight, that they can book their seats on the internet and via the usual distribution channels.
They are also informed of some unusual measures: no ticket sales at the airport, no access to the terminal for accompanying persons, compulsory wearing of masks from the entrance to the CDG terminal to the exit of the Yaoundé terminal. They must also present a testing result certifying they have tested negative for the Covid-19 screening test carried out less than seven days before the departure. They should also promise to self-quarantine on arrival in Cameroon.
The Cameroonian government is reopening its skies to Air France while the air borders are still closed. On March 17, the President of the Republic ordered the closure of Cameroon's land, air, and sea borders as a preventive measure against the coronavirus pandemic. The measures were extended on 1 April for 15 days and again on 16 April for the same period. They are still in force.
