Saint Barthélemy Airport, St Barts

The runway in St Barts has a reputation for providing one of the most terrifying landing experiences in the world. The landing is so technical that French aviation authorities require a special permit be issued to any pilot who want to land in St. Barts.

The landing is effectively the reverse of Princess Juliana with the runway running straight into the sea. Pilots have to navigate their way over steep hills to approach the runway, which is also plagued by turbulence.

Whether you are arriving for a luxury yacht charter in St Barts or meeting your private yacht the landing is an unforgettable experience.
