Hewa Bora's operation license was canceled.
But I'm not sure what the Cogolese government can and will do to correct the problem. Do the government have the necessary skills? Or will they just fine the airlines?
Congo’s ministry of transport has canceled the license of the country’s largest airline after a crash last week killed 85 people.
A ministry communique read on state TV late Thursday said that Hewa Bora’s license “has been suspended until further notice” while the government investigates the crash.
Congo has one of the worst air safety records in the world. Few passable roads traverse the country after decades of war, forcing the population to rely on ill-maintained planes and boats.
