Despite the drop in Airline profit margins and revenue, it should be noted that notable Airlines which maintain frequent routes to African airport hubs, have continuously increased air-fares. Despite these air-fare hikes, there has still been an increase in the growth margin of passengers travelling to the African continent. The passenger growth increase margin highlights the huge client base within the African Airline industry, for which demands and services can be ameliorated. The IATA's passenger growth index indicates that Africa's internal passenger growth has increased greatly to becoming a business travel hub that should see major international airlines shift their focus there for future growth.
Cameroon, a former French and British colony located between in West and Central Africa bordering Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Nigeria and Chad, is an example of one of the developing African nations whose Airline industry in going through a major re-structuring and re-organizational phase. Cameroon best known for its modest oil resources and great agricultural resources has one of the best endowed primary commodities economies in sub-Saharan Africa. Cameroon since its independence has enjoyed stability thus far, leading to development of roads, infrastructure, sustainable development projects and re-merging industries such as its Airline and petroleum industries. Cameroon's main airline company Camair-Co has chosen Lufthansa Consulting as its major partner to help, Camair-Co in its re-structuring and re-organizational efforts. This is a major positive effort which if maintained, would allow Cameroon's ailing Airline industry plagued by corruption, mismanagement and in-efficiency to not only start over but set a viable structure for business success. Lufthansa through its expertise not only allows Camair-Co to set a solid business structure, a solid foundation, recruitment of better staff and management and provide training ad logistics. A guided recovery process allows the Airline to also implement guided performance measurable tasks and services for review.
