N'djili Airport (IATA: FIH, ICAO: FZAA), also known as N'Djili International Airport and Kinshasa International Airport, serves the city of Kinshasa and is the largest of the four international airports in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). It is named after the nearby Ndjili River.
In 1998, N'Djili airport was the site of one of the decisive battles of the Second Congo War. Rebel forces advancing on Kinshasa infiltrated the airport perimeter but were repulsed by Zimbabwean troops and aircraft arriving to support the government of Laurent Kabila.
The airport has barely been maintained or upgraded, and is still using the infrastructure built by the Belgians during the colonial era. In June 2015, a new international terminal was opened which can service one million passengers per year. Some computerized upgrades to the arrivals terminal have been implemented in recent years although corruption remains a problem. (in French)
