St. Maarten


If you appreciate gourmet food, world class duty free shopping, vibrant nightlife, pristine beaches, year-round warm climate and a cosmopolitan atmosphere with a Caribbean twist, Sint Maarten - Saint Martin is the most exciting vacation destination in the Caribbean for you! Christoffer Columbus named it Isla de San Martín because he discovered the island on 11th of November.

We are very pleased that we could resume flights from/ to our main hub St. Maarten, but the immigration and health authorities have strict entry requirements and travel regulations in place that travelers must comply with. Make sure you are up to date with these requirements before you travel! click here for the links to the authorities websites
