SXM Travel Update: Winair to Offer Special Flights Between Curaçao and Sint Maarten

Princess Juliana International Airport has slowly been showing signs of recovery since Irma hit. There’s a lot of work going on at the airport with the focus to have it open to serve commercial flights as soon as possible.

Today, Winair has announced that they will be offering special commercial flights between Curaçao and Sint Maarten. There will be a fee charged if you want to travel on one of the flights, although there was no mention of how much it would cost.

There are three roundtrip flights planned on the following days:

  • Thursday, October 5
  • Saturday, October 7
  • Tuesday, October 10

No times have been announced yet.

The flights are being flown specifically to repatriate citizens of the island who are residents or who have valid residence permits. Flights traveling to Curaçao will carry 130 people and flights to Sint Maarten will carry 145 people.

As of now, these are the only flights scheduled. If any additional flights are added we will let you know. To book the flights contact Winair directly at 721-545-4237 or book through your travel agent.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.

  1. My boat sank in St. Maarten during the hurricane and 2 friends died on the boat. My friend David and his wife died but their daughter Nayseth miraculously survived. She is in St. Martin staying with a family who have been very kind. She has nothing, no clothing, no shoes etc. I am in Aruba but I need to get to St. Maarten asap so I can take care of Nayseth. She and her mom and dad had been living on my boat for 2 years in St. Martin.
    My number is 297-742-7056. I have not been able to contact Winair. I keep calling with no response.
    Your help will be sincerely appreciated.
