Franklin Delano Roosevelt Airport

  Oranjestad, St. Eustatius      (+599) 318 02 69     more than a year ago
You can fly to the tiny F.D. Roosevelt Airport from St. Maarten five times a day. Opened as Golden Rock Airport in 1946, it was soon renamed after the former American president. The small airstrip lacks any buildings of note nearby and even the control tower seems to be missing. In the future the runway will be extended by another 300m so larger aircraft can land here. Basically it’s just a single storey building where all the formalities like customs are performed. After disembarking the plane walk to the building and you'll find your luggage inside. There is no public transport on the island so make prior arrangements or take a taxi. You can also walk the 1km to Oranjestad. An ATM is available outside, but inside you'll find a small bar offering some snacks. Departure tax is a hefty US $15 for all passengers leaving the island.
