Airlines In Kinshasa!?

Tue Feb 04, 2003 12:10 am


hi everyone

I just read on www.justplanes.com about the new airline in Zaire.
Could someone please elaborate more on this, and if possible, briefly describe domestic airlines operating out of Kinshasa!
Anway, I thought Zaire is Congo, or not...!?

thx  Wink/being sarcastic

In my opinion justplanes.com isn't very reliable. The announced a few month ago that SriLankan Airlines will be back in Paris with 3 flights. SriLankan Airlines NEVER stopped flights into CDG during the last years and they have 4 flights.

Right, Zaire is Congo now ...

I don't know anything about the aviation scene in Congo, however I noticed this particular picture on planepictures.net.
