Until LATAM started the route on October 30, 2022, American Airlines was the only other carrier operating scheduled flights between the 2 cities.
While LATAM operates several flights from Miami to Central and South America, the new route to Miami of the small offshoot LATAM Ecuador new route to Miami is the only 1 it has to the U.S.
In fact, the Ecuadorian brand of LATAM only serves a total of 9 destinations.
The Miami to Quito flights will be operated by LATAM Ecuador’s fleet of Airbus A320 family aircraft.
The cheapest return fare we’re seeing checks out at $425, which is the same price as the lowest return fare with American Airlines.
For an additional $209, you can opt to fly up front in LATAM Ecuador’s equivalent of domestic first class that you’re likely to see in the U.S.
Rather than calling it business class, it’s referred to as Premium Economy and can be booked by searching ‘premium economy’ on your search engine of choice or as an add-on when selecting your economy fare.

Miami joins Atlanta (ATL), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), and Houston (IAH) as only the 4th U.S. city with a nonstop service to Quito.
LATAM Ecuador has arrived in Miami with a daily nonstop service from the Ecuadorian capital of Quito.
