Trans Air Congo is a scheduled passenger and cargo airline based in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. Trans Air Congo has interline agreements with South African Airways, Air Gabon and Air France. It currently operates some services on behalf of Air Gabon.

History

It was established on 24 August 1994 by the El-Hage family and started services with a single Let 410 aircraft. Early services were largely between Brazzaville and Pointe Noire.
