US State Department Announces Evacuation Flights Planned for Wednesday For US Citizens
The State Department has announced more evacuation flights for U.S. citizens that are stranded on Sint Maarten/Saint Martin. All citizens should arrive at the Princess Juliana International Airport no later than 8:30 AM.
Bring plenty of water in case there’s a long wait. Remember, this is not normal air service we’ve all grown accustomed to. You will be required to wait patiently and you may not be getting a lot of information while you wait. When the time comes you will be escorted to an aircraft for departure.
Each person is allowed on small carry on bag. No other baggage is allowed. Pets will no be allowed.
If have a pet and/or luggage there are two options. You can leave them with someone you know on the island or you can wait for commercial service to resume. American Airlines announced that they will resume flights from SXM on Saturday, September 12. I just checked and there are seats available on the Saturday flight.
