Bravo Air Congo was an airline based in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo operating domestic and regional passenger services. Its main base was Kinshasa International Airport.
The airline was on the list of air carriers banned in the European Union.
Bravo Airlines was established in 2004 in Madrid, as a scheduled international and domestic passenger airline, registered in Spain. In 2006, wishing to expand their operations in the African market, Bravo Airlines became an airline group, and joined with several Congolese private investors, to create a new airline, named Bravo Air Congo. The new airline is registered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and began operations on 11 September 2006.
Bravo Air Congo operated services to eight domestic destinations, including Gemena, Kalemie, Isiro and Lubumbashi, and eight cities in West Africa, as well as Johannesburg and Nairobi. Connections with its Spanish sister company, Bravo Airlines, link Brazzaville and Kinshasa with Brussels, Paris and Madrid.
