Island Info

The short length of the main runway at Princess Juliana International Airport, and its position between a large hill and a beach causes some spectacular approaches. Aviation photographers flock to the airport to capture pictures of large jets just a few metres above sunbathers (who are often blown away by the jet blast if they are standing in its path) on Maho Beach.There is a small airport on the French side of the island at Grand Case, L’Espérance Airport for small jet and propeller planes serving neighbouring Caribbean islands. Due to its location, Grand Case-Esperance Airport frequently suffers from heavy fog during the hurricane season.With 22 scheduled airlines and some 12 charter services, SXM Airport is well-served by carriers from the USA, Canada, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean with a total of 34 destinations served directly from the airport.
