By my not-too--scientific measurement, there is approximately 8000 feet of runway at St. Maarten.
I looked up how much space is needed to land a 747... oh boy... so many factors... flap angle, runway friction, etc.
A Boeing 747-8 landing with 85% of its payload and 30% of its fuel, weighs 92% (8F) or 98% (8i) of its Maximum Landing Weight (MLW). The FAA/EASA Minimum runway length requirements for MLW landings are 7,500ft (~2,300m) for the 747-8F, and 6,750ft (~2,000m) for the 747-8i. However, the landing distance (at sea level) is far less, at about 5,500ft and 4,750 ft. This is because the plane does not land where the runway begins, nor does it stop where the runway stops, planes operate somewhere in the middle. For calculating the runway length minimum for a commercial aircraft with a MLW of over 100,000 lbs., you multiply the length of the aircraft (a 747 is 250 ft.) by 8, or in this case, 2000 ft.
