Scheduling Flights

If you have confirmed your reservation on the CMI Discover Quito Trip, the next step is to make your flight arrangements, please do so as soon as possible to assure the best fares. Given the varied itineraries and preferences of guests traveling from multiple points of origin, CMI recommends that each guest make their own travel arrangements to and from Quito. However, we are available to assist you in any way necessary.

Several airlines provide service to Quito from various cities in the U.S. and the best priced carrier will vary according to your specific point of origin and preferred itinerary.

If it is practical, we’d welcome having you join us and other guests on the same flights between Miami and Quito. A CMI representative will be traveling to Quito on American Airlines Flight 939 departing Miami on February 26, 2015 at 5:15 PM. The primary CMI traveling party will be returning to Miami on American Airlines Flight 932 departing Quito on March 3, 2015 at 7:05 AM. If you would like to travel with a CMI representative, please include these flights in your itinerary.

However, if it is more practical or affordable for you to travel to Quito by a different route, we will make arrangements to have CMI staff meet you at the Quito International Airport upon your arrival and will provide some basic instructions as to what you can expect at immigration and customs upon your arrival in Quito. Primary U.S. carriers to Quito are American Airlines, United and Delta. If you are traveling to Quito by a route other than Miami, please arrange to arrive in Quito by Thursday, October 17, and schedule your return for Tuesday, October 22.
