EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

New airline emerges as demand for air travel increases

Over 2010 and 2011, the Democratic Republic of Congo experienced several recent aircraft incidents causing deaths and injuries. This had a negative impact on the air sector, for example had its license revoked in July 2011. However, at the same time demand for air transportation remained very strong. As a result, foreign companies strengthened their presence in air and a new operator, Korongo Airlines, started operations in country, from Lubumbashi, in April 2011. This has created a link between previously cut off regions in Central Africa with Johannesburg, in South Africa, and Brussels, in Belgium. The airline is a joint-venture between Brussels Airlines and Belgian multinational Groupe George Forrest International, with full support from Brussels Airlines' parent company Lufthansa.

Internal conflict hinders eco-tourism

The Democratic Republic of Congo is home to eight national parks, five of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as being home to many endangered species. However, internal conflict in eastern and northern parts of the country has prevented the development of eco-tourism, with rebel forces taking control of the national parks, killing park rangers and hunting rhinos for trade.

Potential for new luxury hotels

In Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, there were only two luxury hotels in 2011. However, in 2011, Starwood Group declared that it was considering the construction of a new Sheraton hotel in the city. This would help to boost hotels, as according to trade sources, when considering the pricing, the quality of service in existing hotels is not of satisfaction to clients.

Neighbouring countries attract potential gorilla tourism

In Rwanda and Uganda there is promotion of eco-tourism and, in particular, gorilla tourism. According to trade sources, even though the Democratic Republic of Congo has a higher gorilla population than Rwanda and Uganda, the lack of effective policy for the preservation of wildlife has given Rwanda and Uganda the advantage. According to trade sources, gorilla tourism makes the most significant contribution to tourism receipts and expenditure in both Rwanda and Uganda. Therefore, the tourism authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo need to focus on national parks in non-conflict regions in the southern and western parts of the country.

Road construction projects to help increase tourism flows

The Government of China has signed contracts for the development of infrastructure in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These contracts cover projects to construct roads and railways inside the country and also to develop connections between the Democratic Republic of Congo with surrounding countries. Road construction projects could help to increase tourism flow between the Democratic Republic of Congo and neighbouring countries over the forecast period.
