Miami (MIA) just got a new nonstop service to the South American country of Ecuador.

The Ecuadorian branch of LATAM inaugurated its nonstop service from Quito (UIO) to Miami on Sunday, October 30, 2022.

Here’s what we know about Miami’s newest route to Ecuador.

Miami Welcomes First LATAM Flight From Quito, Ecuador

There’s a new nonstop service from Miami to Quito — the capital city of Ecuador — thanks to LATAM Ecuador.

The route will launch as a daily service with the following schedule:

  • Depart Quito (UIO) 8:30 a.m. — Arrive Miami (MIA) 12:45 p.m.

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.

Hot Tip: You can also redeem LATAM Pass Miles to fly LATAM Ecuador on the new route between Miami and Quito, the rest of LATAM’s network, and a host of other routes which can get you great value. 

Miami joins Atlanta (ATL), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), and Houston (IAH) as only the 4th U.S. city with a nonstop service to Quito.

Final Thoughts

LATAM Ecuador has arrived in Miami with a daily nonstop service from the Ecuadorian capital of Quito.

If you’re planning a trip, make sure to pack some altitude sickness meds as Quito is the second-highest capital city in the world after La Paz, Bolivia.
