History

Lubumbashi International Airport was founded in colonial times as the Elisabethville Airport.[1] It was also known as Luano airport.

This airport played a high-profile role during the Katanga war.[2] After it was seized by the United Nations Force in the Congo (ONUC) troops, the airport was used as a base against the secessionist government.[3]
