SINT MAARTEN - Sint Maarten comes in second as a private charter jet destination according to Elite Traveller Magazine.

Private jets bring an average of US$69,000 in spending to destinations they visit which does not include fuelling and landing fees. Private jet travellers pumped over US$270 million into the Bahamas. Director of Airlift for the Ministry of Tourism Tyrone Sawyer reported stated that the Bahamas has a targeted campaign aimed at the private charter jet market.

Sint Maarten and Turks & Caicos Islands combined accounted for US$208 million in revenues, and the three islands together received 6,922 flights, more than half of the flights.
