Surinam Airways has started flights with its first Boeing 737-800.
The first flight was on 23 January 2023 from Paramaribo’s Johan Adolf Pengel International Airport (PBM) to Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA), with a stopover at Hato International Airport (CUR) in Curaçao.
The aircraft, registration, PZ-TCV, is leased from AerCap and was only delivered to Surinam in December 2020. It was previously flown by Caribbean Airlines.
Surinam Airways is flying the 737-800 on routes between Paramaribo and Curacao, Aruba, Georgetown in Guyana and Port of Spain. It plans to add flights to Miami once it has US approval.
The airline also flies twice a week between Paramaribo and Amsterdam with a wet-leased Airbus A330 from Airub Airlines.
It has just agreed to dry-lease an Airbus A340 from V2 Aviation to fly the route.
