New Services for Quito / Mariscal Sucre Airport

WingoUIO (1)A new milestone in connectivity was reached last week with the inaugural flight of Colombian low-cost airline Wingo on the Quito – Bogota route. There was a celebratory atmosphere at Mariscal Sucre Airport (IATA:UIO) before the first passengers boarded the new flight, which links both capital cities with four weekly flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Quito becomes one of 16 cities in ten countries in which the airline operates.
As is customary at Quito Airport, Corporación Quiport celebrated this occasion with the passengers and executives of Wingo, declaring the inauguration of the new flight and offering the passengers a light dinner before boarding.
The new Mariscal Sucre International Airport was inaugurated on February 20, 2013 and in just three years and nine months of operation it has strengthened the connectivity of Quito, attracting new airlines and expanding its network of destinations and availability of seats for travel.
In a statement by the airline, Catalina Bretón, General Manager of Wingo, said: “Our low prices and extensive network of routes are the perfect combination for all those wanting a happy, fresh and budget travel experience. We will focus our efforts on maintaining excellent prices, ensuring that our flights comply with the established itineraries and that our travelers have a great experience they will want to share, recommend and repeat”. Andrew O’Brian, President and CEO of airport operator Corporación Quiport, added: “The arrival of Wingo in Quito is great news for the connectivity of Ecuadorian passengers who will be able to find a great variety of connections to new destinations, and it will also bring more possibilities for the growth of tourism in this city.”
