This airline ticket prices are ok, but the quality of the airplane is poor. My seat was not clean and the plane has this old smell. However the staff is always very friendly and welcoming. I hope they soon upgrade their airplanes. This airline is known for having delays as well, just like we experienced 2 out of 3 times...

I cannot complain about this flight, service was excellent and the pilots made my experience very easy. I am normally apprehensive about flying. Take-off and landing both ways was great.

Check in, boarding, in flight service, arrival at destination... all phases were outstanding. The service on board brings back memories of when flying was a pleasure. A short flight was made into an enjoyable one. Keep it up.

The flight with SLM was delayed due to slow handling of luggage. The trip itself was good although quite a lot of table trays seemed to be broken. Next time I will fly KLM

I was desperately looking for a flight from Belem north. A lot of flights I had booked were cancelled, and then I found Suriname Airways. They were punctual, clean plane, nice snack, everything was fine.

i didn't think that such a nice airline would still exist our days. After web check-in the day before, the lady at the check-in counter had my boarding pass already in her hand even before i had shown her my passport.
