Surinam Airways will launch twice weekly service between Miami and Georgetown, Guyana, continuing to Paramaribo, on April 3. Non-stop service will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This will be in addition to its current Miami-Paramaribo service via Aruba, which will continue to operate three times a week on MoWeFr. Source is GDS, as flights can now be booked.

I am sure that many Guyanese will appreciate this nonstop flight.

This is not "NEW", Surinam Airways has flown this before. Back in 1986 then even used a Tuplov 154 to Miami.

i still haven't figured out why they don't do MIA-PBM direct? PBM is not much further than GEO, and it sure would be nice to skip the connection...either in POS or AUA. Of course, last week when I got 'stuck' in CUR due to a late 7I flight, it wasn't so bad. Still, a nonstop to MIA would really help both business and vfr travel for Surinam, and I think they would gain more of the business travel with direct connections. When i am on the BW flights, J is usually at least half full, and a lot of those continue on to MIA. i'm normally in Y and see a lot of the same people on the MIA flight as well when i go that route.

i also wonder if having the gov't owned flag carrier in GEO means the official maps of the two countries won't overlap anymore...

SLM has a pair of 737-300's they use for flights in the America's (AUA, CUR, MIA, POS, BEL)
Also an A340 that does 3x weekly PBM-AMS

PBM-GEO-MIA would be with the 737's one could surmise.
(Haven't heard any rumours about additional hardware being acquired)

I do not recall PY ever using TU-154's - perhaps you're thinking of Guyana Airways, which leased some from RO in the mid '80s.

I doubt that. The border disputes between them have been long-running but generally things have been good between them lately. The main crux of the dispute is the area of land in SE Guyana named the Courantyne Triangle, which Suriname claims on the basis of which tributary forms the border at that point.

Trintocan.



Hop to it, fly for life!

Sorry - it was tongue in cheek...what we do is put a legend over the disputed area on any maps so that any officials from either country can at least diplomatically not notice.

I think you are right, it was Guyana Airways. But still probably the only TU 154 ever operated by a scheduled airline to Miami or even the entire USA.

Yes it was GY I have a ticket wallet from my JFK-GEO B757 trip with Guyana Airways and they had a picture of the TU-154 on it. That must have been an amazing route to fly it on back in the day.

Not true...Mavial Magadan Airlines and Aeroflot used Tu-154M's between Russia Far East - ANC - SEA.
