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.

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.
