In case you are reading about AirStMaarten's private charters program for the first time, here is some background information on our shared charters.

A Shared Charter is when you book a Private Charter and you Only Pay for the Seat You Occupy. Not for the whole aircraft. AirStMaarten has been successfully organizing shared charters to St. Barths since November 2006.

Travel Agents and clients book our shared charters for seamless connections and hassle-free transfers to St. Barths and surrounding islands such as Anguilla, St. Kitts, Nevis, St. Eustatius, Antigua and Tortola.

1) If 1 or 2 people request to share a private charter, the shared charter is scheduled.
2) Once 3 or 4 people book the shared charter, the shared charter is confirmed and you are good to go!

If the shared charter is not confirmed, passengers are booked on a regular commercial flight with complimentary VIP Services to ensure their transit is smooth and hassle-free.

Visit for more information, scheduling and availabilities.

5. NEWS ITEM: SXM Airport FBO Construction Plans Delayed


Simpson Bay, St. Maarten --
It appears that the SXM Airport construction plans for a new FBO facility has hit a bureaucratic snag and is experiencing delays due to problems with the paperwork for the building permits.

SXM Airport has provided all information requested by the Ministry of VROMI (Public Works) in order for government to issue the permits to allow SXM Airport to start construction of the Cargo Facilities, the Fixed Base Operations (FBO) and the Fire Station.

However, certain signatures needed from the Airport Holding Company, that owns the lands the SXM Airport properties are on, were missing from the documents.

In a letter to the acting Minister of VROMI, a timeline was provided outlining the construction process, including details on companies bidding for the project and a June 15th, 2015, deadline set by the FBO companies that will be occupying the FBO facility when completed.

Nevertheless, the position of the acting Minister of VROMI, who is the present Prime Minister of the Government of St. Maarten, is that building permits can not be issued until the necessary documentation are submitted with the proper signatures in place.

Management at AirStMaarten is keeping a close eye on developments surrounding the newly-to-be constructed FBO because the facility is designed for three operators to utilize the facilty, however up until now, only two operators have signed on to use the facility when completed.


If you want information on which FBO handler to use here on St. Maarten, please email for advice.
