New Airport for Quito
In 2010, Quito opens its new airport with a longer runway. The airport is a little further outside of the city than the current airport which is in the northern part of Quito. The addition of this airport may impact the number of airlines that provide flights from New York JFK to Ecuador, but this remains to be seen.
