Brazil’s mega-city of Sao Paulo is served by three airports.
The largest is the Sao Paulo/Guarulhos – Governor André Franco Montoro International Airport (GRU) which is located 25km from the city center and is Brazil’s busiest airport. Guarulhos is a regional hub and welcomes flights from around 30 countries throughout the globe.
The airport features two terminals and a wide range of services and facilities. Public and shuttle buses, and taxis connect the airport with downtown Sao Paulo.The city’s second major airport is Congonhas Airport which is located around eight kilometers from downtown and now welcomes domestic flight traffic only, with five Brazilian airlines connecting the airport with cities all over the country. The number of passengers passing through Congonhas is well over 10 million and the busy airport offers a range of facilities.
The third of Sao Paulo’s airports is the rather inconveniently located Viracopos/Campinas International Airport (VCP) which is situated about 100km from the city center. It is, however, only 14km from the city of Campinas in the heart of the Sao Paulo state. A handful of airlines offer services in and out of Viracopos, with flight traffic being almost exclusively domestic.More than 40 airlines offer flights to Sao Paulo airports (SAO).
