Maya Maya International Airport

Brazzaville Maya Maya International Airport (BZV)

Overview

Maya Maya International Airport in Brazzaville is the Republic of Congo's main international airport. It is a joint civil and military airport offering flights to and from Paris, Addis Ababa, Johannesburg and a number of other African cities. Flying to Brazzaville is often expensive; flying to Kinshasa is cheaper but certainly not hassle-free. Facilities at Maya Maya are basic but recent renovations have made it a safer, more comfortable airport.

Location

Two miles (4km) northwest of Brazzaville city centre.

Getting to the city

Taxis are available to take passengers into the city, and some hotels offer shuttles. Private drivers are a popular transport option, too, and should be organised prior to arrival with a trusted company.
