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.
