On 14 March 2024, Surinam Airways issued a press-release in which it announces the upcoming phase-out of its sole Airbus A340-300. According to the statement, the aircraft is set to leave the fleet on 24 March 2024, and will be returned to its lessor V2 Aviation.

Surinam Airways started flying commercially with PZ-TCW (921) on 11 June 2023. Originally, the lease-agreement was for eight months but that has been extended with a few months.

The airline has the intention to replace the A340 with another own longhaul-aircraft. Until they have secured this aircraft, Surinam Airways will wet-lease an Airbus A330-200 from Maleth Aero to operate the flights between Paramaribo and Amsterdam.

Next to the A340, Surinam Airways' fleet consists of two Boeing B737-800s.
