After 12 days of protests and road closures in Ecuador, mainly concentrated in Quito, the Government and indigenous leaders directing the demonstrations came to an agreement on Sunday, October 13 to immediately end the national strike.
Cargo exports continued from Mariscal Sucre Airport despite the difficult situation faced in the country, and particularly the flower industry, during the protests and indigenous mobilization which ended recently. The cargo agencies at Tabacarcen and the palletizers at the airport’s export terminal continued to operate and flights which landed at the airport were dispatched.
By arrangement of the General Directorate of Civil Aviation, operations at Mariscal Sucre Airport are kept open to ensure the city's air connectivity. Most of the flights planned for today have already been canceled by the airlines due to the restriction of movement from and to the city of Quito.
