The DRC will soon have a new modern international airport

Soon, the Democratic Republic of Congo will prepare to welcome a brand new modern airport terminal in Kinshasa. The long-awaited validation was granted on Monday March 25, 2024, with the approval of the security authorities.

Work for the construction and modernization of the new N'djili international airport in Kinshasa is about to begin. This major project promises numerous benefits for the country. Indeed, the plan proposed by the Turkish company in charge of the project was carefully examined by various security services and other stakeholders. This aims to ensure that the company meets the highest international standards.

In addition, the budget allocated for the construction of this new international airport is estimated at 1.2 billion US dollars, for a period of two years, in order to successfully complete the project.

According to the Minister of Transport and Communications, Marc Ekila, the plan was scrutinized “in every detail by the various security services, in particular the Military House of the Head of State, the air force, the Republican Guard, DEMIAP and military engineering. All parties concerned have agreed to launch construction work on this large-scale infrastructure”.

During discussions at N'djili airport, officials of the Régie des Voies Aériens (RVA) and the representative of the Turkish company Milvest presented the model of the new installations.
