General

Aruba's Queen Beatrix International Airport is located near Oranjestad. This airport has daily flights to various cities across the United States. It also connects Aruba with Toronto, Ontario, and South America, with daily flights to the international airports of Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, UK and most of Europe through the Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands. Direct flights from Italy started in November 2008.

There are no rivers or railways in Aruba. The road system connects all major cities. The majority of the roads are paved, but toward the interior of the island the roads are less commonly paved. Coastal areas most often feature paved roads. With a total of 800 km of road, 287 km are unpaved.

There are three ports or harbours on the island: Barcadera, Oranjestad, and Sint Nicolas. The Aruba Ports Authority operates the ports in Barcadera and Oranjestad, while the Valero Aruba Refining Company operates the third port. Barcadera and Sint Nicolaas are mainly industrial and oil ports.

Despite Aruba's location near Venezuela and the other islands of the Netherlands Antilles, boat crossings are not generally available. Private boaters can make the journey, but there is no public transport via the sea.
