Starting in December, American Airlines is adding two new nonstop flight options between Dallas (DFW) and Ecuador. New flights will be available to both Quito (UIO) and Guayaquil (GYE). Intro fares are as low as $467 roundtrip.

American Adds New Nonstop Flights from Dallas to Ecuador

The new nonstop service from Dallas to Quito begins on December 18, 2019, and will initially operate to Ecuador on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, returning from Ecuador on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The schedule will change slightly in early March when flights will operate in both directions on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

New nonstop service from Dallas to Guayaquil begins on December 19, 2019, which will initially operate to Ecuador on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, returning from Ecuador on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Starting in early March, flights will operate in both directions on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Both flights depart Dallas in the early evening and arrive back in Dallas in the early morning, which provides ideal connecting opportunities throughout American's route network.

American previously flew the route between Dallas and Quito from 2015 to 2018, but the route to Guayaquil is brand new. Currently, American flies daily nonstop service from Miami (MIA) to both Quito and Guayaquil and its partner LATAM has nonstop service from New York (JFK) to Guayaquil.
