first_imgSurinam Airways has announced the re-introduction of its twice weekly summer flights to Georgetown, Guyana from Sanford, Orlando, Florida beginning July 1.The airline’s North America Manager, Henk Fitz-jim, said that the re-introduction of the summer flights is in keeping with the airline’s promise to service this route once again during the summer/August holidays season. The airline first introduced service on this route in July 2015. The service runs from July through September and is designed to accommodate Guyanese travelling during this period when parents and children go on vacation.According to the airline company, “this is the time of year when the large Guyanese community in Orlando and Guyanese at home need the convenience of a non-stop flight which will facilitate them going home to Guyana or coming up to Orlando via non-stop, with courteous and affordable service.”So the re-introduction of this Sanford, Orlando route is in response to the growing demand by the Guyanese American community as well as “the satisfaction which the Guyanese community has enjoyed by flying Surinam Airways last year”, Fitz-jim said.Surinam Airways will fly to Sanford, Orlando on Fridays and return on Saturdays each week from July 1 to October 1, 2016.“This is a very convenient schedule for passengers in both directions since they can make connections coming into Orlando either from Guyana or from cities around the US on their way to Guyana. It does not require any overnighting. So the convenience of the flights coupled with our excellent customer service and competitive fares have made Surinam Airways the first choice of Guyanese travelling to and from Florida,” Fitz-Jim said.Surinam Airways will use its Boeing 737 300 series aircraft for this service offering 118 economy and eight business class seats. The airline permits passengers one free piece of checked baggage not exceeding 50 pounds and charges US for a second piece of luggage.Surinam Airways is a sponsor of several events and activities in Florida to mark Guyana’s 50th Independence anniversary, the company highlighted.last_img read more
