Quito, November 23, 2016. The number of passengers who have traveled through Mariscal Sucre Airport has already reached 20 million since the start of operations on February 20, 2013. This afternoon, our 20 millionth passenger arrived on TAME flight EQ 312 from Guayaquil. The passenger was María Fernanda Lucano, who lives in Quito and arrived after a trip through South America.
Upon her arrival she was met with a celebratory atmosphere and was the VIP guest at the party organized in her honor, where Corporación Quiport gifted her a membership to access the airport’s VIP lounges and use the fast track service.
Carlos Criado, Commercial Director of Quiport, congratulated the lucky passenger and also gave her a certificate to mark this special occasion.
