Surinam Airways Adds Miami, Belem and Barbados Service

Surinam Airways is slowly rebuilding its route network with the addition of its second Boeing 737-800, and will offer flights to Barbados and Belem, along with addition lift to Miami.

In addition to its service between Suriname and Miami with a stop in Guyana, the airline will start service via a rather circuitous route with stops in Aruba and Curacao. From December 18, 2023, the airline will operate with following routes with its Boeing 737-800s.

  • PY481 – Paramaribo (PBM) – Aruba (AUA) – Curacao (CUR) – Miami (MIA) – Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
  • PY482 – Miami – Curacao – Aruba – Paramaribo – Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

This slightly differs from their 2019 offering where they had separate flights to Curacao via Trinidad, and one to Miami via Aruba. Customers have pretty flexible booking options, with the ability to book most combinations (e.g. Paramaribo to Miami, or Curacao to Suriname), with the exception of the segments between Curacao and Aruba which they are not authorized to fly.

In addition to Miami, Surinam will resume non-stop service between Paramaribo and Belem (BEL) in Brazil. Service is expected to start on December 13, with flights on Wednesdays and Fridays. The 1 hour and 45 minute flight lands in Belem close to midnight, and turns around shortly after midnight the next day, with returning service on Thursdays and Sundays starting December 14.

Finally, Barbados rejoins the Surinam network, with twice weekly round trip service from Suriname with a stop in Georgetown (GEO), Guyana. This service will start on December 20, operating on Wednesdays and Sundays, in both directions.

Surinam has also announced that it intends to expand its connecting operations out of Guyana with addition airlift to destinations in North America and Europe.
