Air Serv International expands DRC programs 25 Oct 2007

Air Serv International announces the first flight of a Beechcraft 1900c with service from Kinshasa to Goma on October 31st 2007. This aircraft will be dedicated to the exclusive use and needs of the humanitarian and international community. The aircraft will be based at Kinshasa (Ndolo) airport. This is a 19 passenger aircraft with two pilots and can land on relatively short grass and rough runways so it is ideally made for the conditions encountered in this region.
