SN Brussels to be partner in new Congo airline

1 November 2007

Belgium’s national airline SN Brussels will launch a new central African regional carrier early next year in partnership with Congo’s Hewa Bora Airways, a senior company official said on Thursday.

Hewa Bora will own a 51 percent stake in the new Democratic Republic of Congo-based company, which will be called Air DC, and the Belgian firm 49 percent, SN Brussels’ Congo director, Johan Martens, told a local radio station.

Routes from the planned hub in the capital Kinshasa have yet to be finalised but Martens said the airline would initially operate flights to Lubumbashi, capital of copper and cobalt rich Katanga province, and the diamond heartland Mbuji-Mayi.
