Although the St. Barts airport runway has been resurfaced, it still isn't any longer and the flight in is still an adventure.

Located in a valley between two mountains, St Barts airport can take only small 19-seat commuter planes. Pilots require special training for such a short airstrip. Night landings are out of the question.

Most visitors first fly into nearby Dutch St. Maarten at Juliana Airport. Then they take a 10-minute flight on WINAIR, Air Caraïbes or the St-Barth Commuter.

From Guadeloupe, flights are available on Air Caraïbes. Flying time is about 45 minutes.

Because of the restricted luggage and the adventure of landing on a windy day, some people refuse to fly into St Barts.

They come by ferry from St. Maarten or St. Martin. (See ferry info). The boats take between 75 and 40 minutes. The shorter run is from St. Maarten.
