I agree "departure" is a good translation; however, it cannot and does not mean the rapture. I already wasted a whole day recently debating this question and I don't intend to waste another. If someone wants it to mean rapture they'll find a way to make it mean rapture no matter how much evidence you present to the contrary.
Why? Because the departure doesn't occur until Christ returns. Christ doesn't return until after the man of lawlessness is in God's temple claiming to be God. That's solidly a post-trib rapture.
Departure in a pre-trib rapture don't pass the smell test.
