About St. Barths Airport
Gustaf III Airport serves as the central hub for air traffic on and off the island of St.Barths. The airport typically carries small aircrafts, of no more than 20 passengers per flight, to and from this beautiful Caribbean island. Known for its short airstrip, arrivals and departures via plane fly low over a steep cliff face- often flying right over the heads of the sunbathers on the beach! Pilots receive special training in order to be able to land charters on the airport in St. Jean, the second largest town of the island where the airport is located.
Vacationers wanting to fly into St Barths have to first fly into St Martin, San Juan, Antigua or Guadeloupe, and then transfer to a small plane holding no more than 18 people.
