St Martin To St Barts Boat Transfers

St Barts By Plane

Travelers can reach St Barts airport (IATA:SBH) through several various air routes. The airport is highly unique. Located in St Jean, the airport can only accommodate smaller propeller planes up to a maximum capacity of 20 passengers.  The slanted airstrip is technically challenging and only a few pilots are certified to land at the airstrip.

St Barts can be directly accessed from St Martin, San Juan and Antigua. St Martin is the most popular and convenient option for most travelers.

For US and Canadian Travelers Heading to St Barts

The most economical and convenient access pathway for US and Canadian Travelers is to fly into neighboring St Martin (IATA: SXM)  and then take a short 12 minute flight to St Barts using either Winair, St Barths Commuter or private charter. The flights occur frequently, usually every 30 minutes. This is the fastest and easiest approach to St Barts. However, travelers should note that no flights can arrive on St Barts after sunset. The airport closes at dusk.  For late arriving guests, St Barts Blue highly recommends arranging a ferry transfer.

Additionally, Tradewind Aviation has a daily flight leaving Antigua around 3 to 4 PM daily between the dates of October 15th until May 15th.

SBH Airport Information

St Barts boasts one of the smallest airports. Due to the lack of flat land on the island the runway at Aeroport de St Jean (aka Gustav III) airport is actually sloped. The thrilling flight takes you over La Tourmente (Mt Tourment) to land on the downhill slope of the runway. The take off is over the turquoise waters of St Jean.

The short runway can only accommodate small propeller planes (largest plane is a 20 seater). The runway can not support larger aircraft requiring St Barts travelers to connect through local airports. There are no direct flights from the United States, Canada or Europe.
