N'djili Airport (IATA: FIH, ICAO: FZAA), also known as N'Djili International Airport and Kinshasa International Airport, serves the city of Kinshasa and is the largest of the four international airports in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). It serves as hub for Hewa Bora Airways and Wimbi Dira Airways.

In 2004, the airport served 516,345 passengers (+17.9% vs. '03).

It is an alternative landing site for NASA's Space Shuttle.

The airport is supposed to go through a major refurbishment and modernization plan to upgrade the over 50 year old airport's buildings and facilities. The airport has barely been maintained or upgraded and is still using the infrastructure built by the Belgians during the colonial era. The airport offers wireless internet access.
