How to get to | Ecuador

This post is how to get to the country of Ecuador. There is also a separate post on how to get to the Galapagos Islands.

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

Although there are buses from Colombia and Peru, most visitors to Ecuador arrive by air. There are some airlines flying to Ecuador, including:
  • Star Alliance - Continental
  • Oneworld - American, Iberia, LAN
  • Sky Team - Delta, KLM
  • Selected other - Avianca, Copa, LACSA, TACA

TIP With relatively high fares, Ecuador is a good option for including on a Oneworld award, round the world ticket or South America pass.

TIP Check connections via Central America and Colombia for cheaper fares.

UPDATED November 2009 - Continental switch from Sky Team to Star Alliance. No change to advice.
