Getting around by air

Because of the great distances in Brazil, the occasional flight can be a necessity, and may not cost much more than a long-haul bus journey. If you intend to take more than just a couple of flights, a Brazil Airpass will probably save you money. Book ahead if traveling during busy travel times: from Christmas to Carnaval, around Easter, and July and August. Always reconfirm your flights, as schedules frequently change.

Airlines in Brazil

Brazil has two major national carriers, Gol and LATAM (a merger between the Chilean LAN and Brazilian TAM airlines), and a handful of smaller regional airlines. Brazil’s main carriers:

Avianca

Azul

Gol

LATAM

Air Passes

A Brazil Airpass is a good investment if you’re planning on covering a lot of ground in 30 days or less. Gol offers an air pass involving four/five domestic flights anywhere on its extensive network with prices starting at US$505/638, plus taxes and fees; each additional flight costs around US$120. Azul's air pass gives you up to four flights within a 21-day period for US$500.

Either of these passes must be purchased before you get to Brazil, and you have to book your air-pass itinerary at the time you buy it – or possibly pay penalties for changing reservations. Many travel agents sell the air pass, as does the Brazilian travel specialist Brol (www.brol.com).

If for any reason you do not fly on an air-pass flight you have reserved, you should reconfirm all your other flights. Travelers have sometimes found that all their air-pass reservations had been scrubbed from the computer after they missed, or were bumped from, one flight.

Domestic Departure Tax

Embarkation tax on domestic flights ranges from R$25 to R$45, depending on the airport (the bigger the airport, the bigger the tax). This fee is always included in the price of your ticket.
