The Republic of Congo has signed a concession agreement for the development, operation and management of the country’s three international airports of Brazzaville, Pointe-Noire andOllombo.

The concession which was awarded to AERCO (Aéroports de la République du Congo) with the French Egis Group and its subsidiary SEGAP as the operating company’s main shareholder after what Lufthansa Consulting said was almost three years of comprehensive project work. This included the overall preparation of the strategy, the tendering process including the search for investors and the negotiation of the concession agreement were completely managed with the support of Lufthansa Consulting.

Since 2005, the Government of the Republic of Congo has made sizable investments into the modernisation of the country’s airport infrastructure in general and especially in the three airports under concession.

Besides the activities around the airport, Lufthansa Consulting continues to assist the Congolese Government in starting up a new airline. A comprehensive five-year business plan including the future network and fleet structure have already been developed. Lufthansa Consulting is also supporting the start-up implementation of the new airline and ensuring adherence to international high qualitystandards.
