Galapagos Islands Airports & Charter Routes

An archipelago of previously erupted volcanoes, the Galapagos Islands are located off the Ecuadorian coast directly in the middle of the equator. The islands are known for their exotic (and endemic) wildlife inhabitants, and the exclusive landscapes they boast. Centuries ago, these magnificent islands were untouched by man, and not long ago were they accessible strictly via privately chartered vessels. Today however, The Galapagos Islands are a private jet destination in high demand and are visited by scores of adventurers every year.

Few other locations harbor such unique scenery and rare natural wonders, drawing in the elite looking for an exotic and lush getaway. Chartering a private jet to the Galapagos Islands offers a breadth of exhilarating activities, from snorkeling alongside sea lions to hiking around the Sierra Negra, one of the largest and most active shield volcanoes on the Ecuadorian coast. With an extensive selection of private yachts and luxurious tropical tours to explore the islands, The Galapagos Islands truly are an exclusive private jet charter destination.

Popular Private Jet Airports on The Galapagos Islands

With a plethora of islands scattered around and across the equator, the only way to access the archipelago is via a direct flight from Ecuador. No direct international flights to or from the Galapagos exist, therefore, visitors must arrive and depart from either Quito, Ecuador or Guayaquil, Ecuador.

There are two international airports in Ecuador: Jose Joaquin de Olmedo International Airport in Guayaquil and Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito, and there are two national airports on the Galapagos Islands for private jet usage. Both national airports offer multiple FBOs at our disposal to ensure your private aviation needs are promptly fulfilled.

  • Seymour Airport (GPS/SEGS) – The busiest airport in the Galapagos, Seymour Airport is the world’s first “green airport” operating solely on wind and solar power. It is located on the island of Baltra, newly renovated, and frequently sees private jet aircraft due to its 7,874-foot runway. All visitors are provided with a ferry ride to Santa Cruz island after arrival to Baltra.
  • San Cristóbal Airport (SCY/SEST) – Serving the island of San Cristóbal, it is roughly only five years old and experiences significantly less congestion compared to Seymour Airport in Baltra. This airport is in the heart of one of the most populated islands of the Galapagos, making it a convenient option for proximity to resorts and hotels.
