The New Quito International Airport is scheduled to open on February 21, 2013.
When this airport opens, all air traffic to and from Quito will be routed through this airport, and the old airport (Mariscal Sucre) will no longer be in use. So you don’t have to worry about which you will use for your Galapagos flights or your international flights! All services will be switched to the new airport when it opens.

Where is the new Quito Airport anyway??
The new Quito Airport is located about an hour from the Quito City Center. Currently there are very limited hotels and services located near the new airport. So when you’re planning your trip, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to travel to and from the airport.
