When we are referring back to people or persons in Spanish both words are feminine. So by translating, "for those arriving" it would have to be "las que llegan" no? If not what masculine word is "los" referring back to? Thanks.

Not in this case, where we use it as a neutral "those who...". In this case we always use the masculine form even though, as you say, we are talking about "personas". If you used "aquellas que..." it would sound as if you are referring only to the female population. However "aquellos que" is seen as neutral, involving everyone.
I hope it clarified it.
