3 weekly flights…
WILLEMSTAD- December 18, 2023 – In a pleasant atmosphere at CUR airport, we recently celebrated the launch of Surinam Airways’ new direct route connecting Miami and Curaçao. The schedule includes three weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The flights will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a capacity of 150 seats. Upon the arrival of the first flight at our airport, the plane received the traditional water salute.
At the celebration ceremony, the Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje, the Minister of Traffic, Transportation, and Urban Planning, Mr. Charles Cooper, Mr. Gonesh Steven, CEO of Surinam Airways, and Mr. Jonny Andersen, CEO of CAP gave their welcoming speeches to mark the arrival of the first flight. Furthermore, Minister Cijntje, Minister Cooper, and Mr. Muryad de Bruin (CTB), together with Mrs. Christa Zuiverloon, Consul General of Surinam and Mr. Andersen (CAP), presented Surinam Airways, with a commemorative plaque illustrating our beautiful Handelskade waterfront and our renowned Queen Emma bridge, the ‘Swinging Old Lady’.
Curaçao has a longstanding partnership with Surinam Airways, as the airline has been operating direct flights from Paramaribo to Curaçao. The airline has now expanded its flight schedule to include direct flights from Miami to Curaçao. This new connection by Surinam Airways opens up exciting possibilities for more tourists from Miami and other cities in the United States to come and explore the diverse offerings of Curaçao and, most importantly, the warm hospitality of our people. The introduction of Surinam Airways’ direct flights not only enhances travel options for our international visitors but also provides more travel opportunities for our local population.
The Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP), Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH), and the Curaçao Hospitality & Tourism Association (CHATA) extend heartfelt congratulations to Surinam Airways on the launch of its new Miami-Curaçao route!
