St. Martin Princess Juliana International Airport SXM - now rebranded as 'SXM Princess Juliana Airport' is the second-busiest airport in the North-Eastern Caribbeans and serves the Dutch sector of the Island of 'Sint Maarten' at Simpson Bay - one of the five Netherlands Antilles Islands and closest to Puerto Rico - and is gateway of St.Maarten/ St.Martin - the smallest landmass in the world, shared by 2 countries (north side France & south side The Netherlands).  SXM has received a number of awards in recent yeard - including the second International Travel Award in March 2016 and 'Caribbean Airport of the Year' in 2016.
Travel fans around the globe consider landing there to be the 'most stunning landing in the world'.

SXM Airport is on St. Martin Island, about 15 km northwest of the town of Philipsburg, and is a hub to its immediate neighbors on Saba, St. Eustatius, Anguilla & St. Barths islands. 

With yearly an estimated 1.9M passengers, SXM Princess Juliana Airport is hub to Windward Islands Airlines and is gateway for the smaller Leeward Islands of Anguilla, Saba, St. Barth & St. Eustatius. The short runway of 2,433 meters presents a challenge to airline pilots.
