Queen Beatrix International Airport Parking

Queen Beatrix International Airport in Aruba consists of a single parking lot.

The parking facility is available 24 hours per day; however, the airport cannot guarantee the security of your vehicle in this open location.

At AUA, you pay 3 Aruban florins (AFL) per hour. The day rate is 30 florins for the first two days, followed by 15 florins per day.

Passengers who want to park their car at the facility must ensure that they arrive earlier to have plenty of time to look for parking and avoid being late for their flight.

Tourists from different parts of the world arrive and depart here regularly, especially during peak season. Account for human traffic and the possibility of high demand for parking lots during this period.

As an alternative, you may also try to look at nearby locations if there are parking lots by independent providers.

Note: The official local currency is the Aruban Guilder (AWG) or Aruban Florin (AFL), fixed to the US dollar at approximately 1.80 AWG to 1.00 US dollar.

US dollars are accepted everywhere on the Island. Unless specified, all figures quoted on this page refer to the Aruban Guilder (AWG).

This parking facility accepts local currency only.

If you are bringing in US Dollars, you can use them while traveling around Aruba, but not at the parking areas.

Parking Tips at Queen Beatrix International Airport

  • Leave home and plan to arrive at the airport at least an hour earlier. In that way, you can potentially avoid the likelihood of driving around looking for parking availability. It could also delay your arrival at the departure gate promptly.
  • Check out the airport’s map. Before leaving for the airport, familiarize yourself with terminals, gates, access roads, and parking locations.
  • When traveling with a piece of luggage, be mindful of the distance between the parking location and the terminal gates. Also, look if there are shuttle buses available in your vicinity.
  • Especially during the long holidays, rush hour, and high travel seasons, vehicles at the parking area may cause a jam at the bottleneck at the security checking area and the airport gates.
  • When there are lots of passengers, this also means that the airport shuttle services are slow and overcrowded, packed with people and their luggage.
  • Unannounced security measures can also inconvenience your schedule, and it’s hard to prepare for them.
  • Unannounced maintenance and construction work can mean detours that you will have to take to get to your parking spot at the airport.
  • When traveling with your vehicle to the airport, provide enough time to account for possible delays on the road.
