Orbitz.com can help you find cheap flights from Belo Horizonte, the cosmopolitan capital city of Minas Gerais in the southeast region of Brazil. Travelers depart from one of the area's two airports. Tancredo Neves International Airport, also known as Aeroporto Internacional Tancredo Neves and formerly known as Confins International Airport, is located at Rodovia MG 010 S/N, approximately 24 miles from the downtown area. This airport offers direct flights to the United States, Europe, the Caribbean and other major cities in Brazil on American Airlines, Webjet, Avianca Brazil, TAM Airlines, Copa Airlines, Gol Airlines and many others. Belo Horizonte/Pampulha-Carlos Drummond de Andrade Airport is located at Belo Horizonte-MG, approximately five miles from the city center. This airport offers domestic service to other cities in Brazil on Passaredo Linhas Aereas and TRIP Linhas Aereas.
There is a big, uncovered parking lot available right outside of Tancredo Neves International Airport. However, the lot is subcontracted, so the operator can set its own prices, which the airport does not advertise or control. The airport merely states that the prices are in line with the local market. However, rates should be approximately R$4 for the first hour, with a day rate of R$30 for the first day.
Tancredo Neves International Airport is connected to the Belo Horizonte downtown area by express bus. The Conexao Aeroporto express bus costs approximately R$18. There is also an express bus that connects Tancredo Neves International Airport to Belo Horizonte/Pampulha-Carlos Drummond de Andrade Airport that costs approximately R$45. There is regular public bus service and taxis available at both airports. The majority of the taxis in the city use white cars, so they are easy to spot. Taxi service from Tancredo to the city center will cost approximately R$90. At the airports, you can also hire a car in advance. These cars are dark blue. You can also rent a car at the airports from car rental companies such Avis, Budget, Hertz, Localiza and Unidas.
Tancredo Neves International Airport has limited dining options available if you want to grab a bite before a flight. Your best bet is to eat before you get to the airport at a downtown option such as Restaurante Xapuri. Orbitz.com can help you find bargain dining options in the area as well as help you book tickets on cheap flights from Belo Horizonte.

With a tropical, equatorial climate, the weather in Salvador is predictable and relatively unchanging. High temperatures are in the 80s all year round, while lows usually dip into the 70s.
