Fly to Rio de Janeiro Galeao International Airport

Flights into Rio de Janeiro, Galeao International Airport (GIG) bring visitors from around the world to enjoy the experience that is Rio.

This city of contrasts boasts the extraordinary, iconic landscapes of Sugarloaf Mountain and Corcovado Mountain, the latter with its statue of Christ the Redeemer, yet it also plays host to abject poverty in the favelas which cling to the hillsides.

Many come here to play on beaches like Ipanema and Copacabana, or to experience the drama of the Rio Carnevale; others come to explore a rich cultural heritage which is showcased in the Museu Historico Nacional.

From the airport, the best way to reach the center of Rio is to use one of the fast, comfortable premium buses. If you take a taxi, be prepared for some serious haggling.

Once in Rio, most of the beaches and upscale shopping areas are within walking distance of each other in the Zona Sul, while the zoo, observatory and museums are in the Zona Norte.
