Flights to Brazil

Flights to Brazil

Brazil is the largest country in South America, with a whopping 2,500 airports. The major international airports are located outside of the big cities, so you should choose flights based on what you want to see and do during your trip.

The busiest airport in Brazil is Sao Paulo Guarulhos International Airport. It has the most direct international flights from major European, Asian, African, and American cities. Rio de Janiero’s Galeao International Airport is the second largest in the country, and is the best option if you want to visit Rio with its iconic Cristo Redentor statue and famous carnival.

The airports in the North East of the country (Natal, Recife, and Fortaleza) are good options if you’re flying from Europe as flight times are shorter. It’s also possible to fly to the other major capitals such as Salvador, Belo Horizonte, Brazilia, and Porto Alegre as well as smaller cities like Campinas.  

What to do in Brazil

Brazil is a vibrant country famous for its lively street carnivals, football, and beautiful natural scenery. With flights to Brazil you can discover bustling metropolises like Brasilia and Sao Paulo, laid back beach culture in Fortaleza, and cultural capitals like Porto Alegre.  Party with the best of them at Salvador’s famous carnival, take a cable car to the top of Rio de Janeiro’s Sugarloaf Mountain, and experience the excitement of wildlife spotting in the Amazon Rainforest and Pantanal Wetlands.

Currency, Visas, and Laws

The currency in Brazil is the Real (R$), split into 100 centavos.

Brazil has a reciprocal visa policy: this means that visitors face the same fees and restrictions that a Brazilian citizen would face when entering the visitor’s country.

The majority of European citizens can stay in Brazil for 90 days without a visa, although immigration officers at the airport can reduce the length of the stay if they have a good reason to. There’s a fine of R$8.28 a day for visitors who outstay their visa.

It's a great place to visit for...

Sun-Worshippers: When Brazilians admire something they say “e minha priaia” (that’s my beach) so it’s no surprise to learn that Brazil has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From crowded Copacabana in Rio, to unspoilt Alter do Chao in the middle of the Amazon, you’re sure to find somewhere to float your boat.

Football Fanatics. There’s no denying that Brazilians love their soccer: the Brazilian football team is among the best in the world, and the country has taken home the World Cup a whopping five times: that’s more than any other country.

Eco-Tourists. The city of Manaos sits at the crossroads of the Pantanal Wetlands and the Amazon Rainforest, making it a great place to base yourself if you want to spot local wildlife like toucans, anacondas, and capybara.

Party Animals. Brazil’s nightlife is renowned throughout the world, so whether you’re dancing the night away in a colonial mansion in Porto Alegre, rubbing shoulders with the beautiful people in Florianopolis, or sipping a few beers on the pier in Fortaleza, you’re sure to have a good time.
