Landing at Saba, Worlds Shortest Runway

Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport (IATA: SAB, ICAO: TNCS) is an airport on the Dutch Caribbean island of Saba.

The airport, named after the Aruban Minister Juancho Irausquin, has the shortest commercial runway in the world, only 396 meters (1,299 ft) long, flanked on one side by high hills, with cliffs that drop into the sea at both ends.

Although the airport is closed to jet traffic, regional airline propeller aircraft are able to land there under waivers from The Netherlands Antilles’ Civil Aviation Authority.

The most common aircraft to land there are the Twin Otter and BN-2 Islander.
