If passenger refuses to submit to the security inspection, access to the restricted area and boarding will be denied.

 

ARMED PASSENGERS
SLM does not transport armed passengers, nor does it dispatch firearms and ammunition.

UNRULY PASSENGERS
In the event of an incident involving a disorderly passenger, to ensure the safety of the other passengers, SLM may call the Federal Police or the police agency responsible for the case.

The Tokyo Convention clarifies and justifies the actions of the aircraft commander to suppress the actions of passengers committing offences or actions that may otherwise jeopardize good order and discipline on board. The pilot in command (“PIC”) has powers to take such reasonable measures (including passenger restraint) of arrest and can delegate those powers to members of the crew and to passengers on board the flight necessary to:

  • Protect the safety of the aircraft or of the persons or property on board the aircraft;
  • Maintain good order and discipline on board the aircraft; and
  • Disembark any passenger and/or deliver such passenger to the authorities on the ground.

When passengers demonstrate violent or unruly behavior onboard a Surinam Airways aircraft and almost in every case, sympathetic handling and reassurance by the Cabin Crew is pursued to calm the passenger. However, where an unruly or violent passenger cannot be subdued, passenger restraint devices may need to be used. The PIC has powers to arrest and take such reasonable measures to restrain the passenger. He/she can delegate those powers to members of the crew and to passengers on board the flight.

PASSENGERS UNDER CUSTODY
Inadmissible passengers and deportees and any item they carry, whether or not accompanied by an escorting officer(s), shall be subjected to thorough security screening.

Inadmissible and deportee passengers are persons, who are being removed by a particular country’s authority, that have been the subject of judicial or administrative proceedings and are classified as follows: • DEPU – A deportee who does not require an escort during his/her carriage (deportee unaccompanied). • DEPA – A deportee who requires an escort during his/her carriage (deportee accompanied) • INAD – Inadmissible is a person who has been refused (or will be) entry to the country for a variety of reasons, the most common being the lack of proper documentation (e.g. due to problems with passport, visa etc.).  Usually the carrier that transports the passenger into the country is responsible for their immediate carriage back to either the country of origin or departure.

When circumstances such require inadmissible passengers may be escorted. Deportees under 12 years of age are not included in the number of deportees counted.

For Flight Safety reasons, inadmissible and deportees exceeding a number of 2 per flight, shall not be seated on board as a group, but separated. Immigration officer(s) or designated person(s) will bring INAD(s) and DEPU(s) to the aircraft in order to ensure their departure. The travel documents shall be handed over to the purser of the specific flight. The station of final destination will be informed and upon arrival of the flight the security or designated person shall collect the travel documents from the purser and escort the INAD(s) and or DEPU(s) to the Immigration counter.

DEPA – May be escorted by local policing authorities and or when directive is given by the Director of Security, by airlines security officers. They will be embarking the aircraft before other passengers and deplaned after all other passengers have disembarked.

Alcohol beverages shall not be served to any inadmissible passenger(s) / deportees and to any disruptive / unruly passenger(s).

All deportees being transported as the result of a judicial decision or State authority order, regardless of whether or not they are being accompanied by an escorting officer(s), shall be subjected to a thorough security screening. A physical search of his person and his cabin baggage shall be performed.

The PIC of the aircraft shall be informed of the status of the passenger and provided with an assessment regarding the likelihood of the passenger becoming disruptive during the flight.

In case the PIC considers that the passenger may become disruptive, he may request escort for the passenger. If the PIC is not convinced that the passenger will pose no risk to the flight even under escort, he shall refuse the carriage of the passenger. In both cases of a request for escort, or refusal for transport, the PIC shall make notice of this in his trip report. Based on previous criminal record or information supplied by the government in case of a high-risk criminal the Director of Security may deny boarding of such passenger.

MOST SIGNIFICANT CARRIER rule (MSC) with respect to interline carriage.

♦ If the geographically longest or most significant stretch of your journey is not operated by Surinam Airways, but by another airline, this airline’s rules may also apply to Surinam Airways flights or Surinam Airways flight numbers.

♦ If Surinam Airways operates the geographically longest or most significant stretch of the journey, then the Surinam Airways rules and charges apply.

♦ The free baggage allowance is shown on your ticket.

♦ The MSC rule does not apply to journeys to/from the U.S.A.

SLM is not liable for damage to fragile or perishable articles, money, jewelry, silverware, negotiable papers, securities or other valuables, samples or business documents, which are included in the passenger’s checked baggage, if such damages arise from improper packaging of any of those items by passenger.

NOTICE OF BAGGAGE LIABILITY LIMITATIONS

Liability for loss, delay, or damage to baggage is limited unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. For most international travel (including domestic portions of international journeys), the Montreal Convention will apply, with a liability limit of 1,131 Special Drawing Rights (approximately US$1,775) for checked and unchecked baggage. In some cases, the (amended) Warsaw Convention may apply, with a liability limit of approximately US$ 9.07 per pound (US$ 20.00 per kilo) for checked baggage and US$ 400.00 per passenger for unchecked baggage.

For travel wholly between U.S. points, Federal rules require any limit on an airline’s baggage liability to be at least US$ 3,300.00 per passenger. Some carriers assume no liability for fragile, valuable or perishable articles. Further information may be obtained from the carrier.


ADVICE TO INTERNATIONAL PASSENGERS ON LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Passengers on a journey involving an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of origin are advised that the provisions of the (amended) Warsaw Convention, or the Montreal Convention may be applicable to the entire journey, including any portion entirely within the country of origin or destination. These Conventions may limit the liability of carriers for death or bodily injury, and for baggage loss, delay or damage. Many air carriers, including all European Community air carriers, have waived the (amended) Warsaw Convention limits for death or bodily injury and the defence that they have taken all necessary measures to avoid the damage for the first 100,000 Special Drawing Rights of any such claim. Additional protection can usually be obtained by purchasing insurance from a private company. Such insurance is not affected by any limitation of the carrier’s liability under the (amended) Warsaw Convention or the Montreal Convention. For further information please consult your airline or insurance company representative.
