As part of the security protocols established by authorities, all passengers flying on a domestic flight between Guayaquil and Quito will need a negative quick COVID-19 test, taken no more than 24 hours before their flight, prior to embarking.

In the same manner all passengers arriving to Guayaquil on international flights must have a negative COVID-19 test result, taken no more than 72 hours before their flight.

Passengers need to take a COVID test for any flight between Guayaquil and Quito, following these guidelines:

  • a. In order to board passengers will need a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours in before their flight. This test must be done in a government-authorized laboratory.
  • b. If passengers do not have this test then they can take a quick COVID test either in a government-authorized laboratory or at special designated locations at the airport. These test must be taken no more than 24 hours before the flight. Should IgM results return positive, they will need to do a PCR test to confirm.
  • c. This requisite will remain in place until July 6, 2020. After this date tests will be taken randomly at the airport.
  • d. The companies tasked with managing the airports of Quito and Guayaquil will coordinate control and tests together with health authorities.

Passengers that already went through quarantine (APO) won't need to take a COVID test. The certificate given by the Ministry of Health at the end of APO is a valid document to confirm their health and authorize embarking.
