Congo Airways promises cheaper and safer travel

Claude Kirongozi, director general of Congo Airways, the Democratic Republic of Congo’s new national airline, has promised cheaper and safer air travel in the country notorious for lax safety standards, frequent crashes and poor service. Congo Airways will launch operations on June 30 with one A320. The airline is reported to be finalizing negotiations over the purchase of a second A320.

“The air travel organised by the companies that have preceded us was not safe,” Kirongozi said to media. “These planes will be maintained. We are going to respect the maintenance programme.”

Congo Airways will serve eight Congolese destinations, including the capital Kinshasa, Goma and Lubumbashi. It aims to buy more aircraft in the next two to three years to expand its coverage to 54 domestic airports and foreign destinations.
