Aerogal, one of Ecuador’s main airlines and leading provider of flights to the Galapagos Islands, has announced some small changes to their Galapagos Flight Schedule for 2014 so we thought we’d better share them with you, as it’s quite difficult to find the exact information on the Aerogal website. There are no huge changes, and the operators of the various cruises to the Galapagos Islands will be changing their own operations to suit, so if you’ve already booked a cruise there’s no need to panic – they won’t be casting off without you!
To be honest, compared to the wholesale slash-and-burn schedule changes we’ve seen from some other South American airlines this year (cough…
TAM…cough), this has been very painless. Anyway, here is the full schedule as we now have it. Please be aware that all these flights will touch down in Guayaquil to pick up/drop-off passengers roughly half-way through the flight – we haven’t given the times here but if you are joining the flight in Guayaquil then just get in touch and we’ll give you the full times for those as well.

Aerogal aren’t the only airline flying from Ecuador to the Galapagos, so these flights are supplemented with a separate Galapagos flight schedule from TAME and another from LanEcuador. The latter are in our bad books at the moment, however, for some highly misleading advertising which has had lots of people calling to us to ask about “these direct flights from Lima to the Galapagos” and us spending a lot of time trying to persuade people that there’s no such thing and that you still have to spend a night in Guayaquil, it’s just that it’s technically a through ticket. Not clever, guys…
