Mbanza Congo Airport (IATA: SSYICAO: FNBC) is an airport serving M'banza Congo, the capital of Zaire Province in northwestern Angola. Passenger flights resumed in August 2017 following an eight-year gap, during which the airport was closed for construction works.

The Mbanza Congo non-directional beacon (Ident: SS) is located just northeast of the field.[5]

History

The airport closed in 2009 for a refurbishment project and did not reopen to commercial air traffic until August 2017, when Sonair introduced domestic flights.[6][7]

Airlines and destinations

As of September 2017, Sonair links Mbanza Congo to Soyo and the capital Luanda three times a week.[6]
