WILLEMSTAD- April 5, 2022 – Jetair Caribbean is celebrating the start of yet another new route—this time, between Curaçao and Suriname. The inaugural flight marked the opening of the sixth destination on the airline’s schedule. Leading up to the first departure to Suriname, the Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH), together with the airline, held a reception at the Curaçao International Airport to celebrate this special event. Speakers at the reception included Minister Larmonie-Cecilia representing the Minister of Economic Development Ruisandro Cijntje, as well as the Minister of Traffic, Transportation and Urban Planning Charles Cooper, Managing Director of Jetair Caribbean, Antonio Ribeiro, Jetair Caribbean CEO Robert Maas and Director of Air Service Marketing & Development at Curaçao Airport Partners, Peggy Croes.
At its departure to the city of Paramaribo, Suriname, the aircraft received the traditional water salute. This new Jetair route will allow for more tourists from Suriname to come and experience the unique product Curaçao has to offer, while at the same time expanding the travel options available to locals. Jetair will be operating this route once a week, on Tuesdays, with an 80-seat capacity Fokker 70.
The Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH) want to congratulate Jetair, wishing them all the best with this new destination.
