The airport is located near in the city of Mossendjo, in the Niari Region. It is not in use anymore and used to be a landing point for government members. It can be considered a simple former landing strip, rather than an airport. There is no infrastructure, but the air strip itself remain compact, even though the weeds have grown over the time. The access road is in good condition (compacted laterite), so there is no major constraints in terms of accessibility. However, it is very important to meet with local authorities before reaching the airport. Most of the time the following authorizations are needed: Prefecture, mairie, and police.
The air strip has now some village houses on it.
