Little known Venezuelan airline to begin Suriname flights

aeroparaguanaPARAGUANA, Venezuela -- As part of tourism agreements between Venezuela and Suriname, an obscure small airline from Venezuela, Aero Paraguana, will commence service to Suriname from November 27 according to the manager of the airline, Venancio Polanco.

Polanco said that Suriname is a unique destination with a good tourism product; hotels, food and attractions.

The Venezuelan carrier will fly twice a week from Paraguana, Venezuela, to Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname on Mondays and Thursdays, offering126 seats, of which eight will be first class, said Polanco.

The Paraguana Peninsula of Venezuela is in close proximity to Aruba and Curacao in the Dutch Antilles, which has close ties to Suriname, and the Josefa Camejo International Airport, the principal airport of Paraguana, is served by Insel Air and Tiara Airlines of the Dutch Antilles, and Conviasa and three other Venezuelan carriers.

It appears that the Venezuelan carrier is hoping to connect the Aruba and Curacao market with Suriname as well.

This new route aims to strengthen tourism between Venezuela and Suriname. Customers can begin making reservations on Friday according to officials from the airline.

However, the airline remains an enigma and not much can be found about its history, activities, bookings and what sort of aircraft are in its fleet.
