Our Mandate

The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority through it Airport Operations Unit it must ensure that passengers, mail and cargo are efficiently and safely facilitated through the airports.

Airlines are allotted a specific amount of time when operating on an airport therefore passengers are required to check in for a flight at least two hours before the departure time. An airline can cancel your reservation or close a fight if you are not at the departure gate on time. Your reservation may also be cancelled if the boarding call has been made and your baggage has not been checked in even if you have checked in online. We therefore recommend that you check in for all international flight three hours before the departure time.

Safety and security of the Airports and Seaports is of great significance to the SLASPA as such the Authority has employed a cadre of qualified and trained officers who oversee and manage all aspects of Port Security.
