LAN Ecuador reached a new milestone in the history of Ecuador’s aviation by starting new service to the island of San Cristobal in the Galapagos.
The airline will run two weekly flights to this new destination from Quito/Guayaquil.
“By opening this new route, the island of San Cristobal will be connected not only to Ecuador, but to the world, through the different international destinations reached by LAN Ecuador, LAN Airlines and its other affiliates, as well as by other airline members of the oneworld alliance,” said Maximiliano Naranjo, general manager of LAN Ecuador, in a written statement.
Furthermore, the fact that LAN Ecuador is now reaching San Cristobal is a great contribution to helping island residents become more connected to the rest of Ecuador and the world.
“The community is looking forward to our flights, and we want to respond by delivering the world-class service we are known for,” added Naranjo.
The flights will be operated with a fleet of modern Airbus A320 aircraft, whose fuel efficiency allows them to produce less noise and CO2 emissions. Approximate flight time from Guayaquil to San Cristobal is two hours, and flights will operate on Wednesdays and Sundays.
