President Felix Tshisekedi reassures of his support for the rise of Congo Airways


Kinshasa, May 6th, 2022 (CPA). – The President of the Republic, Felix-Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo reassured of his commitment to support the rise of « Congo Airways », during an audience he granted on Thursday, to the city of the African Union, to the General Director of this public aviation company, Pascal Kasongo.

“We are going to increase in power, according to the recommendations of the Head of State. The concern of the President of the Republic is to see all the people who opt for Congo Airways company, travel in complete safety and in comfortable conditions”, indicated the general manager Pascal Kasongo at the end of this audience.

It is in this perspective, he argued, that Congo Airways has signed a partnership with Kenya Airways to expand its portfolio of services through cargo, crew training and commercial exchanges.

« The mission of Congo Airways is to open up DRC », he recalled, stressing that at present, this company has four planes, two of which are under maintenance.

According to him, the ambition of Congo Airways is both national and international. However, to serve European networks, it will be necessary to remove the country from the blacklist. An audit by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is scheduled between July and August. Its result will be decisive, believes Pascal Kasongo.
