N'Dolo Airport (IATA: NLOICAO: FZAB), also known as Ndolo Airport, is a secondary airport in the city of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, located in the commune of Barumbu near the city center.

The Aviation militaire de la Force Publique was established here in October 1940 with requisitioned aircraft.

Runways are limited to aircraft under 15,000 kg since the disastrous crash of January 8, 1996, in which an Antonov An-32 aborted takeoff and overran the runway 600 m into a market.

The airline Air Kasaï had its head office on the airport property.[1]
