Princess Juliana International Airport is located in the southwest of the island and is the arrival airport for Saint Martin (French) and Sint Maarten (Dutch). It is located in the Dutch part and is also a hub for the smaller islands in the area such as Anguilla, Saba and St Eustatius. The 7,500 feet runway allows reasonably large planes to land here. It is a spectacular sight when you see the Princess Juliana Airport Arrivals from the beach. The planes land just above the beach before landing. In the past, hurricanes have caused major damage to the runway and the terminal. In the current terminal, 2.5 million people can use it annually for SXM departures or arrivals. With 46 check-in counters and 13 gates for boarding, there is enough capacity to manage the many flights to international destinations in good order. To get to your final destination from the airport you can use the taxi or VIP services. After arrival, a car can also be rented at many car rental companies such as Alamo, Budget, Safari, Hertz, Avis, Thrifty and more.
