Getting around by air

São Paulo is the Brazilian hub for many international airlines and thus the first stop for many travelers. Before buying a domestic ticket, check which of the city's airports the flight departs from, as the international airport also serves many domestic flights.

GRU Airport, the international airport, is 25km east of the center. Most domestic flights depart from newly-renamed Terminal 2 in the main building, but Azul/Trip and Passaredo operate out of the newer Terminal 1, 2km to the southwest. Most international flights now operate out of the new Terminal 3 (connected to T2 by corridor and people-mover), an impressive world-class terminal that opened in 2014. Exceptions include mid-haul flights from Central and South America and the Caribbean (Aerolíneas Argentinas/Austral, Aeromexico, Avianca/Taca, Boliviana de Aviacion, Copa, Tame, etc) and a few stragglers from Africa (Ethiopian, Royal Air Maroc, TAAG) and Europe (Air Europa) – but check ahead, the migration to T3 will continue over the life of this guide."

Frequent free shuttle connect the terminals 24 hours a day.

The domestic-only airport, Congonhas (CGH), 14km south of the center, services many domestic destinations, including the majority of flights to Rio (Santos Dumont Airport), which depart every half-hour (or less).
