The Juancho Airport resides in Saba, a small island in the Caribbean. Saba is a municipality of Netherlands. The island contains active volcanoes.

This airport’s paved runway reached 400 metres in length, one of the smallest commercial runways available. Jet airplanes can’t land at the Juancho Airport. The runway only supports short take-off and landing aircraft. The airport contains a helipad, terminals, and a one truck fire department.

Pilots flying to the Juancho Airport must ensure they land perfectly. Airplanes that can’t stop in time go swimming.
