Surinam Airways set to welcome own aircraft

On 9 December 2022, Surinam Airways issued a press-release in which it announced it has secured the lease of a single Boeing B737-800 from lessor AerCap. The aircraft, PZ-TCV (30730), is currently being prepared at Phoenix-Goodyear (AZ) and will be flown to Paramaribo as soon as all final tests are done. The Boeing is featuring a new livery and was previously operated by Caribbean Airlines. The airline will mainly use the aircraft on its important route to Miami-International (FL).

Surinam Airways has been without any aircraft in its fleet since June 2021 when its last Boeing B737-700 was repossessed by the lessor due to the financial difficulties of the airline. For its route to Amsterdam, the airline is wet-leasing capacity from Airhub but hopes to also add its own aircraft for this in due time.
