Pope Francis's visit to Ecuador. July 2015.

The 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.
The 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.
On 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.

The rescheduling of these days flights is being discussed with the representatives of the airlines that operate in that time frame.

The 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.


The Bicentennial 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.
The Bicentennial Park will be closed from June 1st for the preparations.
