Africa One was a privately owned pan-African airline. It was initially based in Entebbe, Uganda, with aircraft wet leased from Africa One Holdings, registered in Ireland. Africa One Congo was a subsidiary based in Kinshasa. It is not clear if the same airline or another of the same name was the operator of the An-26 that crashed with high fatality numbers in the DRC in 2007, but most likely it was operated by the company's Congolese subsidiary, because soon after the incident its operations shut down. Africa One operated in years 2002-2004 and Africa One Congo operated in years 2002-2007.
