FAQs - booking Ecuador flights

  • What is the best way to travel to Ecuador from Vancouver?

    Some of the most convenient travel choices for this trip are two-stop flights aboard either Avianca or United Airlines that travel from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Mariscal Sucre Quito International Airport (UIO) with layovers at airports such as San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), and George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).

  • If I plan on travelling to the northern part of Ecuador, are there any other airports that are convenient for this trip?

  • I want to visit the Galapagos Islands. Where should I fly into?

    The Galapagos Islands are approximately 1000 km off the coast of South America, and flights to the islands are restricted due to their status as a protected National Park. There are no international flights to the islands, so your best option is to catch a connecting flight either from Mariscal Sucre Airport Quito or Jose Joaquin de Olmedo Airport Guayaquila. Two airports are located on the Galapagos Islands, Seymour Airport (GPS) on Baltra Island and San Cristobal Airport (SCY).

  • Do I need a visa to travel to Ecuador?

    Canadian passport holders who are planning to visit Ecuador do not need a visa if their stay does not exceed 90 days. Upon arrival, you have to present a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond your expected date of departure from Ecuador.

Flights from carriers such as Aeromexico, Avianca and CopaAirlines have a layover in their respective hubs, while United and American Airlines offer flights to Ecuador with a layover at a major American airport, such as Houston George Bush Airport (IAH).

Top tips for finding cheap flights to Ecuador

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Ecuador flight deals.
  • One of the quickest ways to travel to Ecuador from Canada is to travel aboard one of the one-stop flights aboard Avianca that travel from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport (GYE).
  • If you plan on taking your kids with you to Ecuador, it is important to know that there are no specific child seat laws in this country except for the fact that all children 12 years old and younger need to be in some form of child restraint. It is also forbidden for any child 12 or younger to travel in the front seat of a vehicle, but child restraints are not a requirement when travelling in a taxi.
  • If you plan on renting a car when you arrive at an airport in Ecuador, most major rental car companies here will expect you to be at least 21 years old to rent a car, you will need to have a valid driver's license from your country of origin, and most companies will expect you to have a major credit card.

  • Travellers should be aware that the official currency in Ecuador is the US dollar. While it is possible to exchange money in Ecuador, it might be more convenient or advantageous to exchange money prior to your departure.
  • ATMs are widely available in Ecuador and in the Galapagos Islands, so you can easily withdraw cash after your arrival. While Ecuador is predominantly a cash-based society, high-end hotels and resorts also accept credit cards.
  • If you want to get to surf destinations, such as Montanita on the coast of Ecuador, consider flying into Jose Joaquin de Olmedo Airport Guayaquil (GYE), which is approximately 2h by car, or 2h 30min by bus, from the famous beaches.

Food was not good, no options for vegetarian or gluten free

Copa me elige como "voluntario" para cambiarme y poder enviar a una familia a la cual había sobrevendido los tiquetes. Finalmente me envían a las carreras con Avianca, pero Copa lleva mis maletas hasta Panama y luego las devuelve a mi aeropuerto de origen, dejandome sin mis pertenencias y además no asumen la responsabilidad ya que dicen que es problema de Avianca Literalmente vi cuando el avión de Copa se lleva mis maletas, sus funcionarios en Bogota, incluyendo la gerente local me aseguran la entrega en Miami, pero simplemente era para poder engañarme y dar el cambio de silla por sobreventa

other than a slight delay in takeoff from Panama , the flights were excellent ..... we will continue to use Copa whenever possible for flights to and from Central and South America ....

la atencion en el avion fue excelente, la facilidad del checkin es muy buena.

I liked the friendliness of the crew and comfortable flight. All good.

Cons: "Due the COVID-19 El Salvador closed its boarders, leaving me unable to fly. I have sent two emails, called and spoke to a customer service representative who treated me unprofessionally and rude. After that I have been calling numerous times with a wait of over 25 minutes each time and I still have to answer from you as a company. I am extremely disappointed and want an answer soon."
Pros: "That there was seltzer"
Cons: "The management of preparing the flight and plane so that it was ready for the trip!!"
Pros: "The seat comfort and staff especially the captain - very engaging"
Cons: "WiFi on the airplane to access flight map and other services."
Cons: "This flight didn’t appear in AeroMexico’s system. We had to get our boarding passes in Mexico city, but our original departure was from YUL."
Pros: "Profesional, on time and quality service. A tremendous difference to the US Carriers. A+ based on price, service and amenities"

An hour-long wait to check in, 90 minutes for luggage to come out, lost luggage, chaotic operations

Made payment for extra baggage online. When I got to check-in, they made me pay again. Lesson learned - Dont buy extra luggage allowence online, only pay at check-in.

Cons: "left Houston more than 2 hours later, arrive in Mexico over 2 am"
Cons: "We had frequent changes on our date flight, we also for paid 3 bags and on Aeroméxico’s site it appeared that we only paid for one of them, and lastly on the flight from Colombia to Mexico, one of our bags was opened without our supervision and there were several things stolen from it, the agent that we talked to about the inconvenience, her response was that the authorities could open and revise our bags without our supervision."
Pros: "Crew friendlynesd"
Cons: "Paying a little more attention to the seating. Not everyone was socially distanced. Seat rows were unequally distributed: some were all full others were too empty."
Pros: "Plenty a space between seats. Ver confortable seats and small entertainment screens!"
Cons: "Better selection of movie?"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. Compared to other flights there is more leg room. Flight attendants where friendly."
Cons: "The flight was late on arrival, so there was more time spent in the airport. Due to this, we were right behind another flight that landed before us. Customs will only allow one plane to disembark, so we waited to get off the plan for over 30 minutes. This was the only bad experience with the trip."
Pros: "Due to covid I understand the strict attitude but sometimes they are rude."
Cons: "Better attitudes"
Pros: "Seat OK, but full row. Social distancing OK."
Cons: "Passengers use face masks for the most part, but encouragement (not enforcement) by crew might be considered."
Pros: "Nothing. There were no Covid-19 measures in place and no social distancing. Unsafe. Crew without masks."
Cons: "Is it that hard to follow Covid-19 measures? The flight was full and people sitting shoulder to shoulder."

Just some cookies and water. There could be other options for food.

On time. At least they offer a drink and a small snack. Plane was clean

For bus boarding, group 1 should have been sent on a separate bus ahead of the general boarding. It would have been nice.

I do not speak Spanish or read in Spanish When asking for help, people were hard to find they spoke quickly and pointed a lot directions for where to go and what to do we’re unclear. Which made my traveling uneasy.

Everthing ok , crew very nice but but we had a bad experience with the wheel chair we had to wait too much for the chair, my husband couldn’t walk and he was in lot of pain , LATAM has to take care of that

Flight was great Customer service was questionable until we found someone at checkin to help us. One young lady took all our passports disappeared for 15 minutes, came back with nothing done, handed to someone else and left for lunch. Very complacent. Baggage was very expensive until we went to the service counter and a separate person helped us. Even with platinum status they wouldn’t allow free bags. We will continue to fly Delta as our preferred carrier but will avoid checking in with Latam. Dr. Armand Radke

Terrible They charged me 157$ for excess baggage even though my bags were within the normally accepted limits Flight was late. Service was poor. The snacks were really bad

Hostile flight attendants. Second flight with Jose so much better. Arrived 1/2 hour early. Thanks.

Liked check in process To improve: food and beverages. Not second round was offered and meal had no salad.

Tough flight with turbulence… I was told by a fellow passenger that it is common. Nonetheless, very stressful. Cordial staff.

My flight was delayed by a whole day, so I lost a day of my vacation.

The check-in and passport submission was complicated and repetitive, due to the poor communication between Air Canada and United. There should have been a single set of instructions and a single questionnaire that provided the data for both airlines.

-The cabin was ice cold - When we arrived in Houston there was no gate available -We had to wait 90 minutes for our luggage to arrive.. In the future I will avoid flying with Air Canada at at costs

How would you rate my experience when I was stuck in YOW without being offered a cup of water by the airline?

Marked by flight delays on all segments of the trip. Food in first class cabin was mediocre and overhead cabin storage was not adequate. Overall, the premium charge for first class cabin was poor and over hyped. This will be our last flight with UA.

We enjoyed that we boarded and took off on time. We didn’t like that our connection flight was a twenty minute walk through the airport with only one hour in between flights.

It was good! Appreciated that it was very on schedule so it made the connecting flight less stressful

Two flights,both poor. No entertainment. Cramped and uncomfortable seats, little space, the rest was OK. Staff were acceptable good.

The crew was doing their best on an old plane needing updating. Chairs that creaked and wouldn’t stay in position. My tray table was unusable as was on-board entertainment due the audio needing usb earphones (that were not provided). Prior to boarding in Toronto and despite being scheduled for a wheelchair and assistance, we were dropped off by clubcar without a wheelchair which I found myself by a gate. Due to no boarding gate assigned at that time we waited and when it was, it subsequently was moved from 64 to 95. No help could be found so I pushed my husband’s chair to that furthest gate in the airport at the highest speed possible for a 73 year old. And by that I mean I ran. It was a very stressful experience.

Wifi wasn't working on one of the UA flights after boarding.

The fees for baggage were outrageous. $130 for carry on and $150 for check in for an international flight. The seats did not recline. We were not even offered water. Had we known all of this, we would not have booked Avianca at all.

Ok, but these people don’t give you nothing no snack no water

The inflight entertainment did not work on a 6 hour flight The cel phone chargers did not work There was a 45 minute wait for the luggage to get off the plane.

Avianca flights to Galapagos and back and well organized and on time.

This is the Spirit of Latino travel. And don’t even get me started on customer service.

Boarding was very expedite. The chairs are fixed you can't rest comfortable during the flight.

I flew with my service dog unfortunately they didn’t allow it to flight on the canine, but ok, the only problem was that when I arrived to Quito it took 1 hour to deliver my dog, they were supposed to deliver it the moment we get off the airplane.

No complimentary food and beverage (water, soda, coffe) is offered for a six and a half hours long international flight, not even in premium economy, just to try to squeeze a few more dollars out of the passengers. Same happened in the connecting flight, which was three and a half hours long (Bogota x Miami). First and last time flying with Avianca.

Every food and beverage has to be paid and the seat was not confortable. They even gave water.

Flight attendants to show up on time, offer drinks and food.
