This report examines the aviation sector in Africa’s second largest country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Despite positive political and economic reforms that have been implemented over the past five years, the business environment in this resource-rich nation remains challenging. One of the factors constraining economic development is the state of the Congolese air transport industry. The country’s skies are considered to rank amongst the most dangerous in the world and all DRC-registered aircraft are black-listed in the European Union (EU). As part of the government’s strategy to improve aviation safety, a thorough audit of the country’s tarnished air transport sector is in the process of being conducted. On 11 April 2014 the Department of Transport and Communications confirmed that a new national air carrier, to be known as Congo Airways, would be operational before the end of 2014. According to Minister Justin Kalumba, “Congo Airways will be required to set the standard for the aviation sector and will serve as a benchmark, symbolising the rebirth of the nation as a whole”
