 Due to the large increase in the S.Anaïsien population and the greater influx of tourists the government decided to replace the small and outdated Jean LaPierre International Airport in the Côte Nord region. After two years of construction on March 6 2010 the new Jean LaPierre Airport opened up with two terminals and two runways which would allow for planes as large as 747s to land at the airport.

Terminal A. This terminal is the centre for international flights. Large aircraft such as the 747 and A340 are common visitors and bring thousands of tourists to St.Anaïs.

Terminal B. This terminal primarily deals with domestic flights and flights to neighboring Caribbean islands as well as the occasional international flight when Terminal A is too busy. The aircraft here are significantly smaller and consist primarily of turbo props and small jets. The largest aircraft that the terminal can handle is a boeing 737.

Since the opening of the new Jean LaPierre International Airport passenger numbers have doubled and a greater number of airlines now serve more destinations than before.
