Adaptation of check-in time for all group color codes

ORANJESTAD – The Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA) informs that as of December 1, 2021, all USA departing passengers are allowed access to the check-in terminal based on groups and color codes for each group at the airport as part of the “Passenger Flow Control” for all U.S.-bound passengers.

The AAA made further adaptations to make the process more agile and efficiently indicate the 3-hour time frame between scheduled departure time and allowed check-time. The time frame for check-in for the YELLOW group has now been adapted to be between 08:00 – 12:00 hrs (8 AM – 12 noon). The AAA also adapted the time frame to allow the BLUE group to check in between 12:00 and 14:00 hrs (12 noon and 2 PM). The ORANGE check-in time frame has also been adapted to be between 14:00 hrs and 16:00 hrs (2 PM – 4 PM).

The Passenger Flow Control concept allows passengers to enter the check-in facilities based on separate groups (Yellow, Blue, 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 below.

Aruba Airport Departure Check-in Times Quadrant per Group

Groups and color codes for each group at the airport as part of the “Passenger Flow Control” for all passengers to the USA.

This dedicated timeslot for visitors is according to the information provided in the ED (Electronic Disembarkation) card, where information on the departure flight will also have to be submitted. Residents traveling out of Aruba to the USA 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 that time of departure).

AUA Airport will have ambassadors at the entry doors to control the time slots per passenger. Early passengers will have to wait outside for their correct time slot.
