The airport, named after the Aruban Minister Juancho Irausquin, has the shortest commercial runway in the world, only 400 metres (1,312 ft) long, flanked on one side by high hills, with cliffs that drop into the sea at both ends.[1][2] Although the airport is closed to jet traffic, regional airline propeller aircraft are able to land there under waivers from The Netherlands Antilles’ Civil Aviation Authority. The most common aircraft to land there are the STOL-capable de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter and BN-2 Islander.[cita
