Beni Airport

Beni Airport serves the town of Beni in the province of North Kivu within the north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The city is located in the west of Virunga National Park and the Rwenzori Mountains on the edge of the Ituri Forest. The airport has one runway with gravel surface, designated 11/29, with length of 1,000 metres or 3,281 feet.

Beni Airport serves a small town with an estimated population of 102,624 as of 2009. Not much can be derived from the town and the airport itself, save for the fact that the town is the home base of a number of United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or MONUSCO, which was established in the area to keep and monitor the peace after the Second Congo War. In addition to these, elements of the Indian-led North Kivu Brigade are also based in the town.

Given that the airport is situated in a small town, Beni Airport is not equipped to serve international flights. Beni Airport can be likened to a fairly-built farmhouse, distinguished with red and white paint all over the place, and with a sign that reads “AEROPORT DE BENI MAVIVI” in bold letters below its roof. If you want to fly out of the country, you should head to N'djili International Airport in Kinshasa, the main gateway and the largest of the four international airports in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
