The new Eastern Airlines, which recently took delivery of its first Boeing 737-800, is due to start flying on 19 December from its Miami base.
Initially the airline will operate charter flights, however it has just signed a strategic partnership with Surinam Airways.
“Surinam Airways is delighted to be in a partnership with the new Eastern Air Lines. We believe this is an effective way for our airline to extend its reach by cooperating with Eastern at its Miami base of operations. We look forward to our teams working together to find operational synergies between our two airlines.” Said Ewald Henshuijs, CEO of Surinam Airways.
Eastern’s aircraft wear the classic livery of its predecessor, which went out of business in 1991. It was also based at Miami.
