The following is untrue
"Accidents are quite common, almost yearly, and while most of the times the passengers get away with just a few bruises, 3 years ago one of the planes crashed while attempting to land and all the passengers died, including the pilot who was very well known in the St. Barth community."
Crashes are very rare, and no-one to my knowledge has ever been injured on landing during any incident. There was an Air Caraibes plane that crashed prior to landing in 2001, I reiterate well before the landing and while the causes are still unknown, had nothing to do with the landing conditions at the airport since the plane didn't even get there far!
This is a travel website, so why scare off potential visitors with half-truths?
