Goma mayor Naasson Kubuya said three passengers survived the crash of the CAA Fokker, which was carrying 10 people.
Initial reports said 40 people were on board and only four survived based on initial police estimations.
CAA and rescue team officials have since confirmed that 10 people were on board.
An official with the company confirmed Mr Kubuya's figures and said five crew were among the dead, one crew member was missing and one of four passengers was killed.
