Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport on Saba is the smallest airport of the Caribbean Netherlands. The total number of flights here rose by nearly 12 percent. This growth took place despite the temporary closure due to major maintenance work done between 10 September and 9 October. The airport was also closed down in 2017 after Hurricane Irma for a period of one and a half weeks and the regular timetable was disrupted for some time.
Saba’s airport welcomed over 28 thousand passengers in 2018, of whom most were on their way to or from St Maarten. The runway for landing at the airport is just 400 metres long and only small aircraft which carry a maximum of 19 passengers may land or take off there.
