what time to arrive at AUA prior to departure - with global entry and TSA pre check

I like to live (somewhat) dangerously. How close to my flight time can I arrive at AUA for a Monday 5:45 pm departure to the US? I have global entry (which I think will allow me to use a kiosk?) and TSA pre check. We will not be checking bags. And can we just do online check in for our flight, or do we need to stand in a physical line for check in?

Thanks!

Travelove.......there is no Global Entry or TSA when leaving AUA......

The following link very well sums up the departure process......the one thing in your favor is you will be departing on a Monday....so maybe won't need 3 hours but def 2 to 2 and hours.....

You back yet? Everything I've read says there's global entry at AUA now. Can you confirm?

Not sure about pre check but wouldn't matter. No good at Aruba security (first longest line) and C&I backup causes a steady trickle to US security such that I don't think that part ever gets backed up.

they have the computer system for US immigration, it is for everyone's use.
It does speed up the process.
Airport check in for your flight is not speedy but on a Monday should not be bad.
2 hours should be more than enough

This is incorrect. While there is no precheck, there is in fact Global Entry.

You still have to first clear Aruba customs (automated kiosk) then their security. Then US Security (no precheck) then US Customs (yes there is Global Entry).
