SLM receive permit to fly route Miami-Curaçao-Paramaribo, Suriname

Suriname Airways (SLM) Boeing 747 aircraft
Curaçao -- Suriname Airways, better known as the SLM (Suriname Luchtvaart Maatschappij), received permission last week from the Antillean Minister of Transportation, Omayra Leeflang, to execute flights for six months on the Miami-Curaçao-Paramaribo route starting from October 31, 2005.

After this six month period there will be an evaluation. The main reason for the Antillean government to give its approval for this fifth and six freedom rights to the Surinamese airline, a foreign airline, is to create more competition on the Curaçao-Miami route. Since the demise of the Dutch Caribbean Airlines (DCA) airline ticket prices on this route have increased substantially as American Airlines (AA) is the only carrier operating on the route.

You can make a reservation request with us now to fly with Suriname Airways (SLM) on the Miami-Curaçao or the Miami-Curaçao-Paramaribo routes. Click here.
