Also known as Sint Maarten International Airport, serves the Dutch part of the island of Saint Marteen. In 2007, the airport handled 1,647,824 passengers and 103,650 aircraft movements.The airport serves as a hub for Windward Islands Airways and is the major gateway for the smaller Leeward Islands, including Anguilla, Saba, St. Barthélemy and St. Eustatius. It is named after Juliana of the Netherlands, who as crown princess landed here in 1944, the year after the airport opened. The airport is perhaps best known for very low-altitude flyover landing approaches due to one end of its runway being extremely close to the shore of Maho Beach.
