St Maarten St Maritn Airport, known as Princess Juliana International Airport, considered to be one of our main attraction in St Maarten. Although St. Maarten is a little island, with daily flights from the leading airlines in US, Europe, South America and neighbor islands no wonder that the airport of St Maarten St Marin is one of the busiest in the region. If you are planning a trip over and you are looking into booking flight to St Maarten then St Maarten St Martin airport code is simply SXM.
St Marten airport located in one of the beautiful St Maarten beaches. The runway is actually located right on the edge of Maho Beach and every landing and Taking off is a breath taking experience. One of the world famous bars – Sunset Beach Bar – located right on the beginning of the runway is by far, one of the main attraction of our island. St Maarten Airport is probably the only place in the world where you can almost touch the planes while landing…especially after few drinks…
so…buckle up, sit back, relax and enjoy the flight…

Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, he decided to name the country after himself, though St Christopher has over the years been shortened to the ‘fond’ name St Kitts.
