Maya–Maya Airport (IATA: BZV, ICAO: FCBB) is the international airport of Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of the Congo.[1]


In 2010, a new 3,300-metre (10,800 ft) long runway and a new terminal with three air bridges were opened. The older runway was repaired and now is used as a taxiway. A second phase of the new terminal was completed in 2013, the construction of which, valued at $160 million, was undertaken by Chinese construction firm Weihai International Economic & Technical Cooperative Co., Ltd.[2]
