The first terminal building quickly became inadequate. Consequently, a new one was built in 1964.

In 1986, the terminal building was remodeled with new departure and arrival halls. In 1997, a master plan was developed resulting in the new US$100 million St Martin airport terminal that was officially opened on November 10, 2006.
