Closest Airport SAB Getting There Took the 7:05am flight from St Maarten's airport(SXM) to Saba's airport on Winair's 19 seat Twin-Otter plane. Note that you need to be at SXM 1 hour before the scheduled flight time. It's a short 15 minute flight to the world's shortest commercial runaway with beautiful views of Saba out the right side of the plane. Maximum altitude on flight there was 3000ft. My return flight was at 5:30pm and it flew lower with a 2000ft maximum altitude.
