- Spain’s principal airline increases the frequency of flights to improve connectivity between the two capital cities.
- The Spanish airline bets on the Ecuadorian market; with this latest increase signifying a 16% increase in seats per year.
Iberia began its direct flights to Madrid from Quito Mariscal Sucre Airport on October 28, 2013, with three flights per week. In 2016 it doubled its flights and from July 1st this year it will offer one flight per day.
Iberia also presented its program “On Business”, which enables passengers to collect points and miles for future journeys, this way helping to strengthen commercial ties between Spain and Ecuador.
For Corporación Quiport, concessionaire of the Mariscal Sucre airport service, one of its strategic goals is to maintain solid relationships with airlines. The sustained increase in the city’s connectivity, which attracts new airlines, new destinations and more flights, is vitally important to provide passengers with a positive experience.
Corporación Quiport has worked continuously for airlines to increase their offer, in addition to bringing new destinations to Quito Airport, and this way improve connections with the city. “The conditions of the airport and Quito’s importance as a destination in the region have been decisive factors in important decisions taken by airlines” says Andrew O’Brian, President and CEO of Corporación Quiport.
The collaboration between airlines and Quiport makes it possible to offer quality services for those who visit Mariscal Sucre Airport. In Iberia’s case, the offer is not only focused on tourists, but also on the business community. The Spanish airline aims to support the growth in commercial ties between both countries, in line with the work of the national government and Quiport.
