Queen Beatrix International Airport

Queen Beatrix International Airport in Oranjestad[?], Aruba, is a fairly large aviation facility that has flight services to the United States, most countries in the Caribbean, the northern coastal countries of South America and some parts of Europe, notably the Netherlands. It was named after Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, the head of state of Aruba.

This airport used to serve as the hub for bankrupt airline Air Aruba[?], which was for many years an international airline. Before Aruba's separation from the Netherlands Antilles in 1986 it was also one of three hubs for ALM[?]. ALM still keeps an important presence in the airport, but because of Aruba's separation, the fact that ALM flies out of Curacao, and because ALM is currently facing a troubled financial situation, ALM has reduced their services to Aruba considerably.

Airlines serving this airport include:
