There are many airports in Suriname. However, not all Suriname airports have regularly scheduled flights. In fact, some small airports have no regularly scheduled passenger services.

Some regional airports in Suriname are only served by small "local" airlines which do not make their fares available to major travel web sites. For flights out of that sort of city, you would need to research which airlines serve the city and locate their web site or phone number by any means you have at your disposal.

Suriname, officially the Republiek Suriname, is a country in northern South America. Other common names are Surinam or Sranang. It was formerly known as Nederlands Guyana, Netherlands Guiana or Dutch Guiana. It lies in between French Guiana to the east and Guyana to the west. The southern border is shared with Brazil and the northern border is the Atlantic coast. The most southern parts of the borders with Guyana and French Guiana are disputed (upper Corantijn and Marowijne rivers; the map shows the Guyana and French Guiana versions of the border).

Suriname is the least-populated independent country in South America. It is also the smallest nation in area on the continent. In 1954, Suriname gained self-government, with the Netherlands retaining control of defense and foreign affairs. In 1973, the local government, led by the NPK (a largely Creole party) started negotiations with the Dutch government about independence, which was granted at 25 November 1975.

The northern, lowland coastal area (roughly above the line Albina-Paranam-Wageningen) has been cultivated, and most of the population lives here. The southern part consists of tropical rainforest and sparsely inhabited savanna along the border with Brazil, covering about 80% of Suriname's land surface. There are two main mountain ranges in Suriname: the Bakhuis Mountains and the Van Asch Van Wijck Mountains.

Lying near the equator, Suriname has a tropical climate, and temperatures do not vary a lot throughout the year. The year has two wet seasons, from December to early February and from late April to mid-August.

The economy of Suriname is dominated by the bauxite industry, which accounts for more than 15% of GDP and 70% of export earnings. Other main export products include sugar, and Suriname has some oil and gold reserves. About a quarter of the people work in the agricultural sector. The Surinamese economy is very dependent on other countries, with its main trade partners being the Netherlands, the United States and countries in the Caribbean.

Suriname's population is made up of several distinct ethnic groups. East Indians (known locally as Hindoestanen or Hindus) form the largest group at 37% of the population. They are descendants of nineteenth-century immigrants from India. The Creoles, mixed white and black, form about 31%, while the Javanese ("imported" from the former Dutch East Indies) make up 15%. Maroons (descendants of escaped African slaves) make up 10%. Amerindians form at most 3% of the population. The remainder is formed by Chinese, Europeans, and Brazilian immigrant workers that have arrived in Suriname in recent times. Religious affiliation is as follows: Hindu 27%; Roman Catholic 21%; Muslim 20%; Protestant (Moravian) 16%; other 15%.
