In this study, we introduce a new complex conformable derivative and integral with noninteger order α which coincides the classical complex derivative and integral for α = 1. We examine basic properties of these newly defined derivative and integral such as Cauchy-Riemann equations, conformability and fundamental theorem of complex conformable integral. As an application of the new operators, we solve some types of complex conformable differential equations.
