Galapagos Islands San Cristobal Airport Reviews

Galapagos Islands San Cristobal Airport also known as San Cristóbal Airport (IATA: SCY, ICAO: SEST) is an airport on the island of San Cristóbal, on the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador.

The area of San Cristóbal is considered as the fifth largest and easternmost island of the Galapagos. It is comprised of three or four fused volcanoes, all extinct. Its name comes from the Patron Saint of seafarers, “St. Christopher.” Its older English name of Chatham is named after William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham. It is home to the oldest permanent settlement of the islands and is the island where Darwin first went ashore in 1835. El Junco, a small lake located near the top of the island, is the only source of permanent fresh water in the islands. This resource led to the early settlement of San Cristóbal, which was home to the islands’ governor when Darwin visited the archipelago in 1835. In 1858, Manuel Cobos and José Monroy formed the Orchillera Company to harvest orchilla moss (a lichen), which was used at that time as a dye. Cobos later formed an agricultural center called “El Progreso” inland from Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, which produced leather from feral cattle, and fish and tortoise oil. A penal colony was built on San Cristóbal Island in 1880 for prisoners from mainland Ecuador. This was eventually run by Cobos. By 1891, sugar cane plantations were established and a sugar factory was put into operation.

Galapagos Islands San Cristobal Airport is home to many government offices, an Ecuadorian Navy facility, and an airport with daily flights to the mainland. Two airlines fly directly to Galapagos Islands San Cristobal Airport from Guayaquil, Ecuador; flights from Quito stop for passengers in Guayaquil.
