Traveling to Terre de Haut by Airplane

It will take a few steps to fly to Terre de Haut

Terre de Haut is the type of destination that travelers head to when they want to really get away from it all and indulge themselves in a true island vacation.  It may take a little extra work to get here, but most are willing to take those steps in order to enjoy the peace and seclusion.  

Pointe a Pitre Airport

Although there is a small air strip on Terre de Haut, most visitors will first fly into Le Raizet Airport (PTP) in Pointe a Pitre from a few locations in the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean.  The airport is the largest in the country and has a 11,483 foot long concrete runway.  After arriving here, visitors have the option of taking the ferry across to Terre de Haut or hiring a charter plane to get them to the island's small air strip.
