SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Ecuatoriana Airlines is embarking on a special mission to bring back air travel to domestic Ecuador with low fares that will make travel affordable when it starts service in October 2021. Discover the World has been appointed as Ecuatoriana’s sales partner in the local Ecuadorian market and will be responsible for developing sales in Colombia, Peru, USA, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, and the United Kingdom.
Ecuatoriana Airlines also revealed its new logo which embodies the culture of the airline. Selecting a stylized hummingbird illustrates the airline’s commitment to work hard on behalf of its customers as well as bringing all the flavors and colors of beautiful Ecuador to their passengers’ experience.
“With Ecuatoriana Airlines and Discover the World, a new era for Ecuadorian tourism has begun," said Eduardo Delgado, President & CEO of the airline. “We selected Discover the World as our partner because they have a vast knowledge of the Ecuadorian market and the best relations with travel and tour operator agencies.”
“Together, Ecuatoriana Airlines and Discover the World will continue to move forward with its commitment and work to reactivate national and international tourism to Ecuador. We are making it easier to access Ecuador’s airports, where many have been shut down and providing cost reductions in fares across Ecuador,” added Eduardo Delgado.
Rocío de Díaz, Director of Discover the World Ecuador said, “We join Ecuadorian Airlines’ vision of offering both Ecuadorians and tourists a unique, warm and excellent service with the highest safety standards. We are sure that this strategic alliance will be fruitful in every way.”
Ecuatoriana Airlines has chosen the Boeing 717-200 aircraft with a capacity of 115 passengers in a three-class configuration. The airline will also use the Dash8-Q400 turboprop on domestic and some transborder international flights. This aircraft has a capacity of 78 passengers in a dual class configuration.
