"Avoid by all costs"
J Oscardes (Netherlands Antilles)
❎ Not Verified | Very dirty, noisy with boomboxes, inefficient procedures, outdated equipment. Leaking roofs, no proper waiting area before you enter immigration, immigration is not permanently manned. Avoid by all costs. Very limited food sale. Only positive are the very friendly people who handle the flights.

Paramaribo Airport customer review
D Graubard (United States)
Small airport - check-in was quick and big smiles and friendly check-in agents. Security took forever - slow process and flight was early (6.15am departure) so maybe that is why. I can't imagine when KLM has a 747 here and they are clearing 300 people compared to a 737 on Surinam Airlines. Gate area is small and there are quite a few shops - some were closed this early but when they are all open there are plenty of options. No jet-bridges so you get the experience of walking on the tarmac to your plane. Toilets clean and prices in the shops reasonable. Arrival is slow with immigration but bags were delivered quickly. Plane parked close to the terminal and it was pouring with rain - no umbrellas provided but wasn't too bad. Airport is 45-60 minutes from Paramaribo on a road with many speedbumps - that is the biggest negative about the airport - especially when your flight arrives at midnight and you don't get to your hotel until after 2am.
