Corporación Quiport, in application of the provisions issued by the National Government, reports on the operational situation of the Mariscal Sucre International Airport.

  • The arrival of international passengers, whether foreign or Ecuadorian, is suspended.
  • International departure flights are authorized. Some airlines are making international departure flights from Ecuador for which they bring empty planes - a ferry operation - which will then depart with their passengers from the Quito airport.
  • Domestic flights are suspended throughout the country. The General Directorate of Civil Aviation may, extraordinarilly, authorize national flights for justified situations.
    International cargo flights are authorized.
  • Military or air ambulance flights are authorized.
  • The application of these measures is valid until April 5.
  • For information on available international departure flights, please visit our website www.quitoairport.aero and the Twitter account @AeropuertoUIO.
  • We recommend foreign citizens who wish to leave the country by air to first consult with the airlines that operate in the city about the travel options they offer, or to contact the embassies of their countries, who can provide guidance and support.

You can find the complete list of airlines at https://www.aeropuertoquito.aero/en/contact-information-for-airlines-at-quito-airport.html

Access to the passenger terminal is restricted only to travelers who present their air ticket and identity document. Tickets for international flights are not sold at the Mariscal Sucre Airport.

Corporción Quiport and the Metropolitan Public Company of Airport Services (EPMSA) have security personnel at the passenger terminal and at the Quito Airport Center (administrative building) for our users and passengers.

Corporación Quiport has been carrying out a disinfection process of the entire passenger terminal, that is, national and international arrivals and departures areas, as well as public halls. For this effect we are using a broad spectrum virucidal that allows immediate disinfection.

We ask citizens to follow health recommendations, avoid listening to and replicating rumors and false information, and to report through official channels.
