Getting to Brazil


Brazil’s major international airports are São Paulo’s Aeroporto Guarulhos (GRU) and Rio de Janeiro’s Aeroporto Galeão (GIG), both which provide connections to northern gateways like Manaus (MAO), Belém (BEL), and Macapá (MCP.)


Varig and TAM, Brazil’s major carriers, operate international flights with hubs in Miami and New York. Though direct flights to Rio are becoming more common, many stop over in São Paulo. American Airlines, United, Delta, and Continental also serve Brazil.

Flight Times

10 hours from New York to Rio and 8 hours from Miami to Rio (add another 1-2 hours for layovers in São Paulo); 13 hours nonstop from Los Angeles.
