Maya–Maya Airport (IATA: BZVICAO: FCBB) is the international airport of Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of the Congo.


In 2010, a new runway 3300 m long (05L/23R) and a new terminal with three air bridges were opened. The older runway (05R/23L) was repaired and now is used as a taxiway. A second module for the new terminal was completed in 2013.
