PARAMARIBO, SURINAMESurinam's startup airline Angel Airways plans to begin operations in October 2022 to serve the Caribbean and international routes.

The new Surinamese operator will initially carry out twice-weekly flights between Pramaribo International and the Amsterdam Schipol airports and then add new destinations to its route network such as Thailand, Indonesia, and China.

Suriname and the Netherland authorities allow only three operators to maintain operations between the two countries. Suriname currently allows the national carrier, Surinam Airways and Fly All Ways to service the route.

Therefore, there is still room to grant a license to one more airline.

At the first stage, Angel Airways will deploy two Boeing 777-300ERs for its overseas routes to Europe and Asia. In the second phase, the airline will add Boeing 737-800 jets to its fleet to operate Caribean routes and connect Caribean to the United States and Canada.
