    Hewa Bora Airways Sarl was the national airline of the Democratic Republic of the Congo based in Barumbu, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    It was one of Congo’s largest airlines and operated regional and domestic services.
    Its main base was N’djili Airport.”Hewa bora” is Swahili for “fresh air”. The company slogan was N°1 in Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    Hewa Bora Airways had 1,100 employees in March 2007.

    Operations were suspended after the 2011 crash of Hewa Bora Airways Flight 952, and the airline is now defunct.
    The remains of the business were taken over by a new airline, FlyCongo, which in turn merged with the Compagnie Africaine d’Aviation only six months after it was started up.
