Airports in Ecuador
The location of the state of Ecuador on the map of South America is clear from the name - it is here that you can take a memorable photo, being in two hemispheres at once. In addition to the equator, the country has many more tourist attractions, including the Galapagos Islands with their amazing wildlife, clean beaches on the Pacific coast and old cities founded by conquistadors during the conquest of America. There are no direct flights from Russia to Ecuador's airports, but KLM, Iberia or Lufthansa planes will gladly deliver travelers from Moscow with connections in Amsterdam, Madrid or Frankfurt. You will have to spend at least 17 hours in the sky.

To the magic islands
The most amazing air gates of Ecuador are located on the Balta island of the Galapagos archipelago. In 2012, they became the first green airport in the world to use modern energy saving and environmental protection technologies. Galapagos air harbor is powered by the sun and wind turbines, and ocean water is desalinated.
All flights here are operated by Avianca Ecuador and LAN Ecuador from Quito, San Cristobal and Guayaquil.
