The airport has a terminal divided into two parts, one part for flights to the United States (USA Aruba Departures) and one part for all other flights (Non USA Aruba Airport Departures). The distinction between AUA departures to the United States and Aruba departures to other countries is made because the airport of Aruba offers “border preclearance” for passengers to the US. This means that you no longer have to go through passport control upon arrival in America, which saves a lot of time.
