On the departure date a chartered bus will drop students off at the Quito airport at approximately 6 PM. The airlines like you to be at the airport 3 hours prior to international departures. This means that you should book a departing flight that leaves after Quito after 9PM.
Pitt in Ecuador June session students should book return flights that depart after 9 PM on June 29.
Pitt in Ecuador July session students should book return flights that depart after 9 PM on June 29.
BYU and FLAS students should book return flight that depart after 9 PM on July 20
If you leave before that time you will need to arrange your own transportation to Quito from the Tena area. The chartered bus leaves from the field school in the Tena area and returns directly to Tena from the airport without proceeding on into town. Thus students or faculty who choose to stay longer on their own will have to arrange their own transportation from the airport into Quito or their continuing destination.
Because the bus drops the group off at the airport at 6PM no evening meal is provided on the departure evening. There is a Kentucky Fried Chicken, TGF Fridays, Steak Houses, etc. in the food courts at the airport.
