Cameroon airline to hire 443 workers

Cameroon Airlines Corp. says it plans to hire 443 new employees, including 30 pilots and 75 crew members, to get the new African airline off the ground.

Paul Alain Mendouga, managing director of the airline, said in a release Camair also would be seeking dozens of ground operations workers, maintenance workers, security officers, administrative and financial resource members and other employees, ToutCameroun.com reported Thursday.

ToutCameroun.com said the airline was incorporated Sept. 11, 2006, via 100 percent public capital. Since then the airline was formed, its first director-general, Gilbert Mitonneau, resigned and was replaced by Mendouga.
