Does Cameroon Airlines operate any B 747s still? What's up with the B 747-300 from Singapore Airlines?

Where do they fly to?

Sorry to inform you that Cameroon Airlines ceased operation in March 2008.

In September 2005, the DGAC ( The French civil avaition authority) banned flights to France by the airline, for safety concerns.
The airline leased then a B763 from Air Italy on their flights to France.

In November 2005, DGAC gave authorization to fly again to France using their own metal

In oct. 2008, a new cameroonese airline under the name of Camair-Co was supposed to start flight operation .......

Will it return to service? When will this new airline start service now?

What happened to Cameroon Airlines? Prior to their demise, did they still fly that single B 747-300?

don't expect the 747 back... it was more a 1970s/1980s pride government funded thing that airlines like Air Madagascar, Air Gabon and Cameroon Airlines wanted to show off a 747.
Their own flagship 747-200, TJ-CAB overran in Paris CDG on 5 nov 2000 was was broken up there.
TJ-CAE, the 747-300 from Singapore, operated for them between 2001 and 2004, then went to Phuket Airlines on 16 dec 2004 and is stored now in Bangkok.

Quoting United Airline (Reply 2):

They also operated a B767, B757 and a few 737s. Basically UY was a badly run government operation which mainly served the interests of president Paul Biya and his cronies. Flights were cancelled frequently for state visits and personal shopping trips in Paris. Then they wanted to privatise things, a number of companies signed up, most notably KQ and SN. SN won the first round IIRC and they wanted to set up a regional base in DLA. But then behind the scenes everything changed and all of a sudden a new American company had won the bidding. In the end the entire privatization failed miserably and at some point last year UY ceased operations. The latter happened in part from pressure from international donors.
