What is the Airport Like?
The airport is modern; it was only opened in the year 2000. It replaced a smaller general aviation airport which was located south of the current airport. The new facility has been built to resemble one of the old sugar mills in the area and looks stunning from the outside. Inside it’s a little plainer but light and spacious. There are adequate facilities for a small to medium size airport including a café serving hot and cold snacks and a small shop selling local souvenirs and bottles of the rum made locally. There is also an interesting range of jewellery and accessories made from the coconut shells grown locally. The airport has Wi-Fi access and an airport information desk. There’s an ATM provided by VISA but no banking or currency exchange facilities. If you need medical help the staff are trained in emergency first aid and if you’re parking up at the airport there are nearly 500 spaces.
