Quito International Airport, is Ecuador's busiest airport and an important airport for connections to other destinations in South America. Opened in February 2013, is located on the Oyambaro plain near the town of Tababela at a distance of about 18 km or 11 mi east from Quito.


The new airport replaces the old one in the North of the capital, which - surrounded by residential neighborhoods - will be converted into a city park. The new state-of-the-art facility, both terms of design and its air navigation systems, CAN handle over 5m passengers per year and the runway is long enough to accommodate the landing of an Airbus A380, the world’s biggest passenger aircraft. Quito handles more than two thirds of Ecuador’s international traffic, and is ready to expand its connections to all capitals of South America.
