WILLEMSTAD, Curacao -- A delegation of Dutch Antilles Express (DAE) officials, which includes planning, marketing/sales and legal staff, has left for Suriname. The objectives are to continue visits and discussions with tour operators, travel agents and hotels in Suriname to promote the new service to Paramaribo that DAE will start offering on November 19, 2012.
The other object of this mission is to consolidate an agreement with Suriname Airways (SA). It is the intention and desire of the two parties to work as close as possible for the development of this new destination and to expand the cooperation between the two airlines.
DAE has offered SA a very flexible interline agreement whereby they would have available to them free access to DAE’s inventory and seats, not only on the Paramaribo – Curacao flight but on all the other flights operated by DAE.
DAE has made a request to SA for reciprocity on their routes. DAE’s main objective is to unite efforts, marketing, resources, destinations and seat inventory of the two airlines where both will benefit in a win-win situation and whereby both countries could benefit. This agreement and united efforts would bring extra airlift to the economy of both Suriname and Curacao.
