Shortest Commercial Airport Runway

Juancho E. Yrausquin is the only airport on the Caribbean island of Saba, in the Netherlands Antilles. It is well known among experienced fliers for the way in which airplanes must approach or take off from the airport. The runway at Saba’s airport is just 400 meters (1,312 feet) long that leaves no room for any mistake when one lands there, as at each end of the runway there is a sheer drop into the water.
