As of June 24, 2022:
Adaptation of Check-in times and introduction of a new Group Color Code
ORANJESTAD – Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA), the company that manages and operates Aeropuerto Internacional Reina Beatrix (AUA Airport) hereby informs that as of June 24, 2022, all US departing passengers are allowed access to the US check-in terminal based on 4 groups and color codes at the airport as part of the “Passenger Flow Control”.
The color codes by groups for check-in are defined as follows:
• The YELLOW group has been adapted between 08:00 – 10:30 hrs. (8 AM – 10:30 AM).
• The BLUE group has been adapted between 10:30 and 11:30 hrs. (10:30 AM and 11:30 AM).
• The new GREEN group allows check-in between 11:30 – 13:00 hrs. (11:30 AM – 1 PM).
• The ORANGE group will remain between 13:00 – 15:00 hrs. (1 PM – 3 PM).
The Passenger Flow Control concept entails that passengers are allowed to enter the check in facilities based on separate groups (Yellow, Blue, Green, and Orange) established by the scheduled airline departure times. Passengers will thus receive a dedicated timeslot to enter the terminal as indicated in the table. This dedicated timeslot is determined for visitors based on the information provided in the ED (Electronic Disembarkation) Card where information on the departure flight will also have to be submitted. Residents travelling out of Aruba to the US should take their scheduled departure time into account to determine at what time they are allowed to check-in (not earlier than 3 hours before scheduled departure time).
Passengers shall have their boarding passes on hand while entering the check-in areas as these will be verified by AUA Airport ambassadors at the entry doors to actively control the time slots per passenger. Early passengers will have to wait outside for their correct time slot.
AUA Airport would like to thank all passengers for their understanding as AUA Airport is trying to provide a better service for all departing passengers while undergoing the various check points at the airport.
