It also established new regulations to support tourism professionals such as hoteliers and tour operators to expand their operations, improve quality standards and infrastructure.

* Government efforts to promote domestic tourism through promotional campaigns and infrastructure development increased domestic tourism activity. Expansion in airlines' domestic networks also contributed to the growth; LAN Ecuador added two daily flights service from Quito to Manta city in March 2013.

* Traveling by air was the preferred mode of transport for international tourists in 2013, with 760,010 choosing this method of travel, accounting for 65.8% of the country's total international arrivals.

* The US is the most popular outbound destination for Ecuadorans, with a total of 395,100 departures to the US recorded in 2013. This was supported by relaxed visa regulations, cultural ties and a common currency. Departures to Peru accounted for the second-largest share of 17.5% of the total outbound departures in 2013, driven by geographical proximity and low currency conversion rates.

* With improvements in airport infrastructure and government initiatives to promote tourism, the airline market in Ecuador is expected to continue to grow over the forecast period.
