Flights from Morro de São Paulo to SalvadorHi there
I'm going to Morro de São Paulo in May and would like to take the air taxi from Morro de São Paulo back to Salvador (will be taking the boat there). I've been quoted a price of R$299 per person for a single flight. However, I've read that there are airport taxes and luggage charges that need to be paid in addition to price of the flight. I've contacted the agency that quoted me for the flight, but I keep getting copy and paste generic replies. Does anyone have more information on how much these charges are?

1Which "boat" there? The catamaran takes 2 hours.
The ferry boat-bus-boat is another, more interesting and scenic, but more time consuming (about 4 hours) option.
Note: Irregardless of charges, unless you are taking a flight out of SSA shortly after landing on the Morro-Salvador small plane flight, it seems no savings (of time, over the catamaran), given the amount of time it takes to shlep to/from the airport (vs. the more centrally located catamaran dock or ferry dock).
iirc Addey lands in Valenca, where the bus also leaves you to take a lancha or boat, the same you would take from the bus. Aeorstar lands behind one of the Morro beaches and then you are transported to the edge of 2nd Beach.
Are you "contacting" the agency (Addey or Aerostar or ?) in English? Try Portuguese; you may get a better response. English, let alone good English, is not so common in Salvador even in the tourist sector.

2Ah, and re: luggage charges" for the small plane, you can leave the majority of your luggage (at the airport "guarda volumes", at your accomodation, or at the bus station) and take only a small bag with a couple of changes of bathing suit. ;-) The "streets" in Morro are sand and luggage is usually moved from the catamaran dock to a pousada/hostel by boys with wheelbarrows, so the less, the better and more independent.
