Changes at the Gustav III Airport

st-barth-airport-xray.jpgAs approved by the Airport Security Committee on February 25, 2008, an x-ray machine has been in operation at the airport since November 1. Because the airport is small and the departure lounge with the x-ray machine is close to the ticketing counters, forbidden articles can usually be easily put in the passenger's suitcase and re-checked. If that is not possible, they will be put into an inviolable garbage can and destroyed in the presence of a gendarme.

Firearms, knives, dangerous substances, imitations of weapons, liquids, aerosols, and gels. This includes water, perfume, drinks, lotions, creams, shower gel, shampoos, mascara, syrups, toothpaste, liquid soaps and deodorants. One can assume that everything that is not allowed in the passenger cabin on U.S. flights will not be allowed in the passenger cabins of planes departing St. Barth. But, mascara? If in doubt, put it in your suitcase or be prepared to have it tossed!


Liquids: You are allowed bottles containing three ounces or less of liquids. These must be in a one-quart plastic bag. A roll of these bags can be purchased at the airport bar in case you don't have one.

Liquid drugs: You can bring liquid drugs, such as insulin or syrups, as long as you have a prescription for the medication.

Food for babies: There is no restriction on these products as long as the quantity is appropriate for the duration of the trip. Everything should be in closed containers, and you may be asked to taste the food.
