St. Maarten to Get New 721 Area Code
St. Maarten’s new area code is 721. Calls to St. Maarten using either 00-599 or 1-721 will be processed regularly during a “permissive dialing period” that will run through Sept. 30, 2012. Following this, callers using 00-599 will be advised that the dialing code has changed and the new code must be used. Also, St. Maarten-based cell phone numbers that previously began with a 555 have been changed to 550. For information, visit www.VacationStMaarten.com.
