Hewanorra International Airport is the smaller of St Lucia’s two airports (the other is George F L Charles Airport) and handles approximately 500,000 passengers annually. It was originally a military facility and used to be known as Beane Army Airfield.
The airport is situated 3.7km (2.3 miles) north of Vieux Fort and 56km (34 miles) from Castries. As you’d expect in the Caribbean, staff members are friendly and helpful and passengers should have a good experience travelling through Hewanorra International Airport.
Once you’re ready to leave the airport, there are several ways of getting around St Lucia, including helicopter charters, yachts and ferries. Visitors are encouraged to try some of these alternative modes as they offer a unique glimpse into the Caribbean lifestyle.
