HISTORY: COMPAGNIE CENTRE AFRICAINE AIR BANGUI formed in 1966 in association with Air Afrique and Union de Transports Aeriens (UTA), with the latter providing management and technical assistance. It was conceived to provide feeder services to Air Afrique. Operations started in early 1967, linking Bangui with Berberati. In July 1967, a Beech 95 Baron was acquired for flying new routes to Bakouma and Bangassou. Gaining flag carrier status, the company was renamed Air Centrafrique in mid-1971 following reorganisation after the government attempted to withdraw from the Air Afrique consortium earlier that year.
