Saint Barthelemy Airport, also known as Gustaf III Airport, is a public airport located at the island’s second-largest town St. Jean on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthelemy. Both the airport and the main town of Gustavia are named after King Gustaf III of Sweden, under whom Sweden obtained the island from France in 1784 followed by sold back to France in 1878. In 2015 the airport was renamed Saint Barthelemy Remy de Haenen Airport, after an aviation pioneer in the Caribbean and later being mayor of Saint Barthelemy. The airport is visited by small regional commercial aircraft and charters carrying fewer than twenty passengers. The de Havilland Dash 7 is the largest aircraft ever allowed to operate at this airport.
The approach descend on short final for runway 10 is extremely steep over the hilltop traffic circle and departing aircraft fly right over the heads of sunbathers enjoying the beach on Plage the St. Jean.
