Mini Guide Aruba Airport

Why do People fly Into Queen Beatrix Airport?
It’s the main airport on Aruba and the only one to take international flights. That makes it the point of arrival for tourists from the US and Canada or from the main South American countries. European travellers also come here for holidays with many Dutch tourists arriving on scheduled and chartered flights from the Netherlands with scheduled holiday flights arriving from other European destinations. Almost all go there for the beaches, old Dutch charm and the rugged, desolate beauty of its interior but some go there on business for the gold mining, petroleum industry and the phosphate extraction.

Queen Beatrix Airport

What is Queen Beatrix Airport Like?
The airport is quite large for a Caribbean island and the single terminal is split into US and non-US departures to allow for the special clearance given to travellers from the US. It’s split over two floors with most of the facilities on the ground floor including a small Marriott Hotel facility called the Marriott Vacation Club. The airport has airbridges on the second floor of the terminal to and from the planes and throughout, the airport is clean, bright, modern and well organised.
