I was at the airport when that happened and the power was off there for about an hour. Our plane had to wait because people couldn't get thru the new automated passport control and security. Plus the toilets wouldn't flush in the bathrooms speaking of cr*p.

I would have thought the airport would have a generator for situations like this.

I would think they do but it is probably maintained by GEBE and it was off line for routine maintenance. .

We have been to SXM four times, we have wondered everytime where all that money from taxes paid by tourists goes! The infrastructure on the island is awful. An international airport not having a backup generator, that is just unacceptable. I wonder whose pocket all those tax dollars are going into!

We all forget that St Maarten is still a third world country whether we accept it or not through rose colored glasses. As Forest Gump said "sh**t happens".

They claim they are NOT third world.
Very touchy about it.
Airport is separate grid. Pburg is separate grid.

I think the statement from the GEBE spokesperson was "Who ya gonna believe, me or your own eyes?"
