Among the passengers, almost 19 people survived, who were later taken to hospital.
The deadly air accident occurred when a Busy Bee Dornier-228 smashed into two houses near the airport, and got engulfed in flames.
Aircraft accidents are common in the vast, conflict-wracked central African country citing lax safety standards and poor maintenance. Last month only an Antonov-72 cargo plane carrying eight crew and passengers went missing after taking off from Goma.
As a precautionary measure, all Congolese commercial carriers, including Busy Bee, are banned from operating in the European Union.
