Flights from Quito to Galapagos - Buffer day before cruise?

Our current plan is as follows

Day 1 Arrive in Quito

Day 2 Quito full day

Day 3 Rain forest TBC

Day 8 Back to Quito

Day 9 Quito to Galapagos for 8 day cruise

Are there instances of flights getting cancelled from Quito to Galapagos? ie. Should we reach the Galapagos a day before our cruise starts?

Thanks

Dear Gemcap,

that is very rare. If you're taking the flight that your cruise ship has booked you on, you'll have nothing to worry about. There are several flights a day to Galapagos and should anything ever go wrong, I suspect they would accommodate you and others in other flights. In the 20+ years I have been in this business, I've never seen such a thing happen (and there are more daily flights to Galapagos now than there ever have been).

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron
