Pope Francis's visit to Ecuador. July 2015.
arrival of Pope Francis to Quito on July 5, 6, 7 and 8 will alter the air and vehicular transit in the city. The operations in the Mariscal Sucre airport will
be suspended temporarily and the routes of the buses will be modified.
transport restrictions in the Mariscal Sucre airport will be applied from the
midnight of Saturday, July 4th. Access to the airport will normalize on July 5th, once the highest authority of the Catholic Church and his caravan move to the Nunciatura
Apostólica, located on avenue December 6 and Orellana.
July 6, when the Pope will fly to Guayaquil and then will return to Quito; and
on July 8 when he'll travel to Bolivia, restrictions will be repeated.
rescheduling of these days flights is being discussed with the representatives
of the airlines that operate in that time frame.
vehicular movement will be totally prohibited in two sectors of Quito during
the Pope Francis visit: the Centro Historico and the Nunciatura Apostólica
where the Pope Francis will be hosted. Restrictions will start on Sunday, July
5, from 8 p.m., and will end on Tuesday July 7, at midnight.
Park, located in the former airport, north of Quito, will become a temple of prayer, receiving thousands of parishioners for
the mass that Pope Francis will officiate on July 7 at 10:30 a.m.
