Flights are currently being offered from Miami [MIA] & New York [JFK].
Sangay Touring® will assist you plan & organize your Galapagos Islands cruise and/or land-based package*
*due to LAN flight logistics, certain restrictions & arrangements are necessary (see below)
- LAN flights are currently scheduled to arrive in the Galapagos Islands (Baltra airport only) at 08h45, which means that you can connect with any cruise that uses Baltra as their starting point for the cruise. Note: for cruises starting in San Cristobal this will not be possible;
- LAN flights take off at 09h20 from the Galapagos Islands (Baltra airport only), which means that for those wishing to enjoy and Galapagos Islands cruise you will need to add one hotel night in Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz Island) on the last day of the cruise in order to be able to connect with the LAN flight the following day. The reason being is that cruises generally end between 09h00 and 11h00 in the morning of the last day of the cruise – making it physically impossible to catch your outbound LAN flight out of Galapagos that same morning;
- Sangay Touring® will assist you to coordinate/reserve your hotel night in Puerto Ayora (subject to availability) and ground transfer from Puerto Ayora to Baltra airport.
