Guyana oil surge and Surinam Airways comeback with Turkish support – By Ray Chickrie

  Commentary By Ray Chickrie – 

The government has given ailing state-owned Surinam Airways CEO, Gerard Lau, who took over a few months ago, three years to turn the company around, but with so many changes at SLM, there have been numerous plans by different CEOs to “turn the airline around.” Interestingly, there was no mention of part privatizing the airline or inviting Ethiopian or Turkish Airlines to take part ownership of SLM. This is just wishful thinking.

The old model for the past 30 years hasn’t worked and this is why aviation expert Tomas Clumeckhy is urging the airline to change its business model.

On an unusually very hot Labor Day, over three million spectator and tens of thousands of masqueraders and revelers converged on and jammed down Brooklyn’s sprawling Eastern Parkway for the largest carnival parade in North America under the ubiquitous eyes of officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD).

In the stifling, sweltering, humid weather, police on Monday kept a very watchful eye on masqueraders, revelers and parade-goers in their attempt to avert any killing or violence that had marred the spectacular parade in previous years.    Continue reading
