Take an Inside Look at Princess Juliana International Airport (#SXM) as Service Set to Resume (Video)

Commercial service is resuming today at Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) and the significance of that cannot possibly be overstated. For an island that relies on tourism to fund nearly it’s entire economy, Sint Maarten is happy to be back in business. And plenty of businesses are open as well.

In the following video, SXM acting Chief Operations Officer, Michel Hyman, gives us a tour of the airport as it prepares to open for commercial service. This inside look walks through both arrivals and departures areas, showing the maze of tents and equipment that have been carefully set up to process incoming and outgoing passengers in a efficient manner.

Most of the operations for the airport will be outdoors, under the newly erected tents, and it’s certainly going to be a different experience from normal. There’s no question that the positive, upbeat vibe of Sint Maarteners will make the airport experience feel unique and fun.

If you’re planning to visit soon, be sure to have fun, give hugs, and enjoy an ice-cold beverage with a local!

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.
