There are numerous international airports in various cities where flights to Brazil can land, and countless domestic airports scattered all over the country to make travelling to Brazil easy to plan. The Guarulhos International Airport (SRU), located 10 miles from Sao Paolo, is undoubtedly the busiest but also holds the record for the most flight delays. A close second is the Galeao–Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (GIG), situated 6 miles north of Rio de Janeiro, which has the largest airport site in Brazil. Third place is shared between the capital's Brasilia International Airport (BSB) and Congonhas International Airport (CGH) in Sao Paolo, with the Tancredo Neves International Airport (CNF) in Belo Horizonte also worthy of mention. All airports have taxi, car rental, and executive bus services to carry you from Brazil flights to your destination.
Brazil's peak season is from December to March: Carnival season. From May to March it is possible to find excellent deals and low-fare air ticket flights to Brazil. The weather is generally good all year round with temperatures around very high during the summer in the north, then dropping to the mid-60s the rest of the year. On the other hand, below the equator is generally cooler with temperatures ranging from 60 to 90 degrees. The majority of rain in Brazil falls in the summer, and the tropical areas around the Amazon are notoriously humid.
Getting Around Brazil
The availability of different forms of transportation makes traveling from Brazil flights a breeze. However, for those who want to travel across the country, the sheer size of the country makes air travel the only viable option. Luckily, Brazil has countless airports all over and you can purchase an air pass with Tam valid for 21 days. Avoid flights through Sao Paulo, as they have a tendency to be delayed. Other transportation methods include: bus, which is comfortable, affordable, and frequent, being the main form of transportation in the country and car rental, which is relatively expensive. A few steam trains still run in Brazil as leisure attractions but otherwise the rail system for passengers is virtually nonexistent.
With its natural beauty, lovely beaches, friendly people, and electric atmosphere, Brazil flights take you right to a destination like no other.
