Mariscal Sucre Airport in Quito will close its operations on specific dates between May and September 2024 due to scheduled maintenance work. 

Corporación Quiport, in charge of managing Quito International Airport, has announced this temporary suspension in order to carry out preventive work on the runway. 

These works, which will cover approximately 70,275 square meters, are aimed at ensuring the efficiency and safety of air operations, as well as preventing unexpected closures due to emergency corrective works.

Corporación Quiport, which is responsible for the administration of Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito, has announced that the airport will be temporarily closed at various times during the months of May, June, July and September due to maintenance work on the runway.

Suspension Dates and Times

The suspension of operations will take place on the following days and times:




The airfield closures have been coordinated and approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC). Both Quiport and the DGAC have informed the airlines operating at Quito airport of this need through the corresponding NOTAM.

Any change in flight schedules, rescheduling or cancellation will be promptly communicated by the airlines. However, we recommend passengers who have flights scheduled during these periods to contact their airlines for updated information. Contact numbers are available at: https://www.aeropuertoquito.aero/aerolineas/.

In addition, Quiport will be performing maintenance work on taxiways A and B, which will not interfere with air operations. These actions, along with the runway work, are necessary to maintain the airport facilities in optimal condition.
