InselAir resumes route between Curaçao and Suriname today

InselAir MDIWILLEMSTAD - Starting today, Monday, December 18, the local aviation company InselAir will resume the route between Curaçao and Suriname. This has been confirmed both the airline and the Surinamese aviation authority (CASAS) last weekend. The first flight departs today at 14.15h from Curaçao and lands at 5.45pm (local time) in Suriname.

InselAir wanted to resume flights to Suriname earlier but had to postpone the start because it did not have the necessary permission. The company previously had a scheduled service from Curaçao to Paramaribo but had to stop the route last year due to financial problems.

Earlier, a Surinamese top transport officer at the Ministry of Public Works Transport & Communication indicated that InselAir first has to settle its debts in Suriname. Only then could they talk about a possible restoration of the flight connection with Suriname.
