Hewannora Airport Mini Guide

I’ve not Heard of Hewanorra Airport, Where is it?
Hewanorra Airport is better known simply as St Lucia Airport as it’s the main airport for the island. The other is Castries Airport which deals mainly with inter island flights with smaller planes. The island of St Lucia is one of the most popular Caribbean destinations and the island has much to offer in the way of sandy palm-fringed beaches and dense tropical jungle.

What is the Airport Like?
Hewanorra is expanding rapidly in passenger numbers but not in the capacity to deal with them. The airport is often crowded and unless car hire is booked in advance you can expect a long wait or maybe disappointment if you wait until you get to the airport. The airport is fairly basic having just a couple of coffee shops selling light snacks and hot and cold drinks whilst there’s a duty free – well stocked with rum and cigars, and a small kiosk selling papers, books, magazines and travel sundries. It’s clean and compact but watch out for the work that has begun to try to ease congestion which sometimes means delays or inconvenience when facilities close unexpectedly.
