Airlines to Galapagos

It looks like there are two choices for airlines flying into the islands: Tame and Aerogal. Are either of these airlines preferred over the other?

I thought Aerogal has much newer planes than Tame?

I went ahead and made reservations with TAME by going to their website. They emailed me the next day with a reservation confirmation, and informed me when and where to pick up my tickets. It seems they have streamlined the process for internationals to book their tickets directly with them. Also, I noted that the prices for the TAME tickets were substantially less expensive than the price for tickets on Aerogal. FYI. Thanks for all the informative reples.

Hey AiQ,

When you say new planes, you mean just a new paint or sticker job, right? ha ha

grandpa, my suggestion is that you go to a travel agency upon arrival to pay for the ticket and get closer to guaranteeing your bookings. Show up to the airport with enough time...my host sister's friend who worked for a former Ecuadorian airline was famous for canceling late ticketed passengers.

I have dealt with Tame on several occasiones. This last trip with a group of seven. We went to the airport 1 hour before our flight. Everything went very well. I had been worried becouse there were so many of us. We also we flew a brand new plane on our flight from Guayaquil to Quito. It's first flight was Febuary of this year!
