Saint Martin

Region: Latin America: Caribbean


St Martin is an island located in the northeast Caribbean, approximately 300 km east of Puerto Rico. The island is split approximately equally between a French territory (Saint Martin) and a Dutch territory (Sint Maarten). L’Espérance Airport (SFG/CCE) in the French part caters mainly for small jets and propeller planes serving neighbouring Caribbean islands. Due to its location, L’Esperance Airport frequently suffers from heavy fog during the hurricane season. Therefore all international flights arrive at Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM), which is located in the Dutch side. SXM is a major hub for carriers such as Winair, which flies on to Anguilla, St-Barthélemy, Saba, Sint Eustatius, Montserrat and other nearby islands. Prop planes head from L’Espérance to Saint Barthélemy, Guadeloupe and Martinique. St Martin does not have its own civil aviation authority and thus it is reliant on The Directorate General for Civil Aviation (France) to regulate and oversee the aviation industry in St Martin.
