Travelling to St Barts

How To Get to St Barts

The most common way of getting to St Barts from anywhere in the world is by long haul into Princess Juliana Airport on Sint Maarten (SXM), which is a larger island just a few miles to the north of St Barts. Connecting flights take less than fifteen minutes and boat journeys can be as short as forty.

The easiest way forward is to search online your local airport for connections to SXM or contact your regular travel agent.

We recommend using travel agencies as they have access to the fares and schedules of all the carriers and in the case of schedule changes and flight cancellations they are extremely well equipped to find alternatives and deal with refunds etc.

Premium IV is not a travel agency, nor does it want to be, however we do have close contacts with experts in flights in this part of the Caribbean, and we have done this many times before.
