The airlines Congo Airways and Kenya Airways signed on April 22, 2021 in Kinshasa, a memorandum of understanding in the aviation sector validating the principle of strengthening their regional partnership.
Signed by the Managing Director of Congo Airways, Désiré Balazire, and that of Kenya Airways, Allan Kilavuka, this memorandum of bilateral cooperation is based on two major objectives after identifying areas of mutual interest for the two carriers. This collaboration aims to foster the exchange of knowledge, experts, innovations and best practices through technical cooperation.
