Paramaribo Johan Adolf Pengel Airport
Originally called Zanderij Airport, Suriname's main aviation gateway had a name change in the 1980s to honour a former prime minister – Johan Adolf Pengel. It is located in the town of Zanderij, around 45 km (28 miles) south of the capital, Paramaribo, which can be reached by road in around an hour. Johan Adolf Pengel is dedicated solely to international traffic; domestic flights are handled by Zorg en Hoop Airport, 3 km south-west of Paramaribo's city centre.
Johan Adolf Pengel International Airport does not have an abundance of amenities. Expect an ATM and Bureau de Change along with a limited selection of duty-free items and souvenirs.
There is currently no passenger internet service available.
East & Drink
Johan Adolf Pengel International Airport has a couple of cafeterias and a bar, but travellers would generally be advised to eat prior to arrival at the airport.
