New SLM Boeing 737 makes first commercial flight

PARAMARIBO, WILLEMSTAD - SLM performed its first commercial flight with the new Boeing 737 yesterday. The aircraft departed from Paramaribo to Curaçao and Aruba. For the time being, only this route will be served with the leased aircraft.  


SLM expects that the registration of the aircraft with US civil aviation will only be completed in the coming week. After that, the flights to Miami will also be operated with its own aircraft. Airhub Airlines will begin operating flights to Miami in the coming week.  


The Surinamese airline heralds a new era with the new aircraft. The expansion of the fleet is related to the restructuring of the ailing company.
