Paramaribo Zanderij Airport Reviews

Paramaribo Zanderij Airport also known as Johan Adolf Pengel International Airport (IATA: PBM, ICAO: SMJP), also known as Paramaribo-Zanderij International Airport, is an airport located in the town of Zanderij, 45 kilometers (28 mi) south of Paramaribo. It is Suriname’s only international airport, and is operated by Airport Management, Ltd./ NV Luchthavenbeheer.

THe Paramaribo Zanderij Airport was a Pan American World Airways stop. After the fall of the Netherlands to German forces in 1940, the United States obtained military basing rights to the airport from the Netherlands government-in-exile in London. The first American forces arrived at the airport on 30 November 1941 and expanded the facilities to be a transport base for sending Lend-Lease supplies to England via air routes across the South Atlantic Ocean.

With the United States entry into the war in December 1941, the importance of Zandery Field increased drastically, becoming a major transport base on the South Atlantic route of Air Transport Command ferrying supplies and personnel to Freetown Airport, Sierra Leone and onwards to the European and African theaters of the war. In addition, antisubmarine patrols were flown from the airfield over the southern Caribbean and South Atlantic coastlines.

The state will invest an extra US$ 70 million in expanding and modernizing the Paramaribo Zanderij Airport. US$ 28.5 million has been invested so far in the Paramaribo Zanderij Airport’s modernization. For the time being, the arrival lounge, commercial center and parking lot have been handed over, while the runway has been repaved, the platform for planes has been renovated, the runway lights on the arrival side have been replaced and a backup system for electricity has been installed as well. Plans are to have the airbridges installed in 2014, when Suriname will host the next UNASUR heads-of-state meeting, while the other matters must be finished by 2015.
