SLM Boeing 737

Airlift between Guyana (GEO) and Miami (MIA) is set to increase on October 31, when Surinam Airways resumes twice-weekly scheduled flights on that route.

The airline told Guyana Aviation that the flights will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays departing Cheddi Jagan International Airport at 10:45 a.m. and arriving MIA at 3:15 p.m. On the return leg, the flight will depart MIA at 3:45 p.m. and arrive GEO at 9:15 p.m.

Guyana reopened its international airports to scheduled commercial flights on October 12 after a seven months hiatus.

Since the reopening, Eastern Airlines and Caribbean Airlines have resumed flights into Cheddi Jagan International Airport, with COPA and American Airlines coming on stream in the coming days.

Suriname Airways will also operate between Guyana and Suriname on Tuesdays and Saturdays as repatriation flights only as Suriname remains closed to scheduled commercial flights.
