Flights to Galapagos (SCY) for Ecoventura passengers are serviced by AVIANCA Airlines from Quito and Guayaquil to Galapagos (San Cristobal). Flight reservations for confirmed passengers are made automatically through our allotment of seats. Passengers who purchase their tickets through Ecoventura for the Avianca flights noted below will receive assistance with the check in procedure and the option to pre-pay the transit card and park entrance fee. A representative from Ecoventura accompanies our passengers on this flight.
On the day of departure, please be at the airport in Quito or Guayaquil two hours prior to departure for check-in. A message will be left at your hotel the evening prior with the exact check in time. You must first have your bags inspected by SICGAL as required to travel to Galapagos. Next, look for the Ecoventura representative at the AVIANCA Airline ticket counter to collect your boarding pass, transit card (if prepaid) and get assistance with check in. Do not stand in line to pay the transit “INGALA” card if you have already prepaid. Upon arrival in Galapagos, you will form a line to process passengers for the Park entrance fee. The park representative has a list of our passengers that have pre-paid the entrance fee to Ecoventura. Once through, our guides will be waiting for you with signs. You must then claim your checked bag so that our crew can deliver them to your cabin.
Passengers who choose to travel to Galapagos earlier or choose to purchase tickets on another flight will not be provided with these airport day services.
