Uncertainty about return InselAir to Suriname

Insel-Air-MD80-FOTO-Insel-AirWILLEMSTAD - InselAir has completed its technical affairs to resume commercial flights to Suriname. “InselAir received formal approval from the Civil Aviation Authority of Suriname (Casas) on December 7, 2017", the local company writes in a press release. Based on this, the airline states that the sale of airline tickets can now take place.

According to the press release emitted by the airline last week, they want to start on December 18 with two flights a week from Curaçao to Paramaribo, on Mondays and Fridays. But it is not clear whether the flights will actually start on the eighteenth because InselAir does not yet have permission from the government to resume commercial flights. "No", is the resolute response from Minister Jerry Miranda of Public Works, Transport & Communications to questions from a Suriname newspaper.

Casas director Brian de Souza had said before that technical permission from his organization, in this case, does not automatically mean that the company gets the green light to fly to Suriname again. The government of Suriname will have the last word. After the abuses earlier this year in which the company suddenly fell away six months ago with all the consequences for passengers and businesses, the government of Suriname also wants to analyze this case,” said De Souza a few weeks ago.
