    Princess Juliana International Airport is located on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin divided between France and Netherlands. It is not equipped with an automatic landing system, which is why pilots have to land planes manually. In addition, the airport runway is very short – its length is 2,130 meters. Therefore, very low-altitude flyover landing approaches (right over the holidaymakers’ heads on Maho Beach) is a common thing here.

    There are tens of thousands of airports operating in different countries across the world, and this number is growing continuously. Find out about the oddest of them in Sputnik’s photo gallery.

    From the Caribbean to the Himalayas, here are some of the strangest airports around the world.
