The ANC welcomes Congo Airways weekly launch Kinshasa-Joburg route

M Sibande

The ANC welcomes the launch of the national airline of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo Airways flights between South Africa and Congo. The flights from Kinshasa to Johannesburg will run three times a week, on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The new DRC-South Africa service represents Congo Airway's first scheduled flight to South Africa, affording an opportunity to further strengthen relationships, build new economic partnerships, and enhance trade and tourism business between the two countries.

The launch of Congo Airway's DRC-SA route follows the two-country's adherence to the Single African Air Transport Market which was launched last month on the margins of the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We believe that the South Africa industry players will work closely together with their Congolese partners to make the African Union agenda 2063 a successful one regarding the movement of our African people and goods.

I thank you
