Flights To/From the Galapagos Islands

Arriving to Ecuador

There are no direct flights to Galapagos. Whether you’re traveling from the United States, Europe or anywhere else, you should book an international flight to Guayaquil or Quito, the capital of Ecuador.

Here’s the reason: As Galapagos is a protected National Park, there are some regulations that airlines shall fulfill. It’s unlikely that there will ever be an international flight to the Galapagos.

The only two international airports in Ecuador are located in the cities of Quito and Guayaquil:

 

José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport in Guayaquil (GYE) receives flights from:

  • U.S. cities of Miami and New York,
  • European cities of Amsterdam and Madrid,
  • Major cities of Central and South America.

The Mariscal Sucre International Airport of Quito (UIO) receives flights from:

  • The U.S. via Atlanta, Houston, Miami, and New York
  • Europe via Madrid and Amsterdam
