There have many suggestions from travelers through the new airport that it is inconveniently placed too far from the city of Quito.  Transport to the city can take up to 60 minutes or more and taxi fares are generally around $20-$25 traffic being generous.   Be ready for a long taxi ride into the city.

The airport boasts many new check in counters and very modern duty free shopping, restaurants and bars.  Prices seem to be a little high in some of the restaurants compared to other places throughout Ecuador.  But then again prices are always high in airports on the whole.

You can find quite a lot of good information on the Mariscal Sucre Quito Airport website.  Remember to make sure to have your translator on.

If you are travelling to other parts of Ecuador from Quito or if you flight arrives late in the evening you may like to stay at the many new and old hotels and hosterias near the airport.
