It is to be a modern airport facility that will be served by various means of air travel including scheduled air carriers, direct charter flights as well as private jets.

In St. Martin, the PJIAE airport is the main gateway for air travel into the island. Although jumbo jets land daily, accommodating the smaller aircraft such as the De Havilland Dash 8, ATR 42 and ATR 72 used by regional air carriers including Winair, CuracaoExpress (sister airline to BonairExpress), LIAT, American Eagle, Caribbean Star and Caribbean Sun that bring scores of travelers for Caribbean family vacations, family holiday vacations and business travel is no problem. And if you are a corporate executive arriving by jet, you too can be accommodated since direct air travel access to St. Martin is available to private jets.

There are numerous options for air travel to St. Martin if you are coming from North America. Direct charter flights from Canada are provided by Air Canada from Toronto weekly. These flights are usually loaded with fun seeking leisure travelers, so if you are planning a trip, remember to purchase your airline tickets early so you can cash in on a cheap airfare. You can also save up to 70% on last minute deals (special package prices from airlines and hotels) when you book your travel package from 3 hours to 14 days prior to departure.

If you are looking for non stop flights from the Unites States your best bet is American Airlines, Delta Airlines or US Airways. American has weekly flights from multiple destinations, while US Airways have weekly scheduled non stop air travel to St. Martin from Philadelphia and Charlotte, North Carolina, with connections to and from major US gateway cities. This way you can avoid the hassles related to changing airplanes.

If stopping over in another beautiful Caribbean island is not a problem for you (even if all you get to see is the airport), then try one of the scheduled carrier services from the USA to St. Martin provided by American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Northwest, BWIA, Air Jamaica and other airlines via hubs in San Juan, Curacao, Aruba or Antigua. Air Canada, American Airlines and BWIA all offer air travel to St. Martin from Canada via San Juan and Antigua.

Just in case you are wondering... American Airlines/American Eagle is highly recommended for scheduled air travel to St. Martin, for the simple reason that whenever you fly on American, your AAdvantage miles add up. You can then use the miles you accumulate to claim upgrade or travel awards on American Airlines - American Eagle or any of the Oneworld carriers, plus other airlines including Alaska Airlines, EL AL, Japan Airlines and a host of others. Air Sint Maarten is in no way biased towards American but we do have a preference for AA because you can book electronic tickets (e-ticket) on this airline.
