On October 19, 2017, the Quito International Airport inaugurated a chapel where individuals can freely exercise their faith. The chapel, located at the Quito Airport Center building in front of the passenger terminal, will be available to users and travelers circulating through its facilities.
The chapel was blessed by Ecuador’s Nuncio, Monsignor Andrés Carrascosa, the Archbishop of Quito and Monsignor Fausto Trávez. In the ceremony was also present Andrew O’Brian, President and Director General of Corporación Quiport, as well as various authorities from the Municipality.
The Virgen del Quinche del Aeropuerto de Quito Chapel will celebrate Holy Mass every Sunday, from October 29, at 12:30 p.m., and will be open daily, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. However, it holds two areas for prayer that are open 24 hours a day.
In this manner, the airport provides an adequate facility for persons who wish to pray and profess their faith.
