You're flying internationally (technically) into and out of Aruba. From Bonaire, you enter Aruba and go thru immigration, customs, etc., same as any other airport; there can be lines or not--either way, not much you can do about it.

Give yourself plenty of time when you leave Aruba (get to your counter at least 2 hours ahead; check-in, pay departure tax-although this may be included in your ticket already, get thru security, immigration, get to gate--it's not a big airport, but there sure can be bottlenecks).
