Travel in Brazil
Most international flights from Europe land at the international airports of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife or Salvador, where there are connecting flights to most other major Brazilian cities.

Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo also have airports closer to the city centre which are used for the 55 minute air-shuttle between the two cities and a number of other short regional services. Rio's airports are Galeão (GIG) for international and Santos Dumont (SDU) for the shuttle; while São Paulo's are Guarulhos (GRU) for international and Congonhas (CGH) for the shuttle.
