Congonhas Sao Paulo Airport
One of the busiest airports in Brazil, the Congonhas Sao Paulo Airport is one of the three airports servicing commercial flights to Sao Paulo. Third in terms of passengers transported and 2nd in terms of aircraft operations, the airport is also 6th in terms of handled cargo. It is owned by Sao Paulo city, but its operations are handled by Brazilian government corporation Infraero, that also operates the major airports across Brazil.
Congonhas Sao Paulo actually got its name from the former name of its location, which was called Vila Congonhas. The airport is located about 8 kilometers from downtown Sao Paulo, and is also the main airport servicing other nearby cities and towns. The municipality of Santos, a major historical tourist destination in the state for its Coffee Museum, history and its other tourist sites, is a close 69 kilometers from the airport, making it an access point for those who want to visit the municipality.
Local airlines such as TAM Airlines, Gol Airlines, Avianca Brazil, and Azul Brazilian Airlines operate at the Congonhas Sao Paulo Airport, brining passengers to and from the cities of Brazil.
Its passenger capacity annually is 15 million, with a main terminal of 51,535 square meters.
The airport’s beginning started in 1919 when a plan was made to build a runway in the location, but it was only in April of 1936 that the airport was opened to the public. VASP airline used it as a private airport where they serviced passengers to Rio de Janeiro. They had two daily flights during this time.
By 1957, the airport became the busiest in the world in terms of cargo but it wasn’t until 1985 that the main airport was created. Domestic and international flights were made to Uruguay, Argentina, and many places. But since the opening of Guarulhus Airport in 1985, also in Sao Paulo, it halted its operations for international flights due to its short runway. The airport also lost its international category recently, in 2008.
Today, a multi - million investment plan is currently taking place for the improvements and renovations of the airport, in preparation for the 2014 World Cup, where Salvador is one of the host cities.
The airport has all the basic facilities and amenities needed by any passenger. Its central hall has been hailed for being one of the best and most outstanding examples of modern architecture in the region. There is one bank inside the terminal building, as well as 6 ATM machines. There’s one currency exchange unit on the first floor of the passenger terminal, travel agencies, as well as other services and shops. A post office, medical post, lottery agency, and a luggage store are available, as well as other gift shops. A drug store and bookstore can also be found in the passenger terminal.
There are also restaurants and cafes, as well as VIP rooms with VIP dinner served. Individuals who avail of the VIP services get to eliminate waiting in line at the check in counters, staying at the waiting area, and instead enjoy a separate space where more comfortable seating and better facilities are available.
There is no hotel inside the airport but a hotel just 0.4 kilometers is located right beside the airport, which is the Blue Tree Premium Congonhas Airport Hotel.
Taxis, car rentals, and bus lines are all located outside the arrival hall.

Set 800 meters above sea level on a highland plateau is the wonderful city of Sao Paolo, Brazil. The city is the largest in the country both in terms of land area and population, Sao Paolo is actually the largest city in the Americas and in the whole southern hemisphere. The city's temperature ranges from 55 degrees to 85 degrees in the summer, so the climate in Sao Paulo is comfortable pretty much the entire year.
When visiting Sao Paulo you should definitely take a trip to the Saint Benedict Monastery. This large religious compound is home to more than 40 monk cloisters, a visit to the monastery is both a spiritual and cultural experience. During the day, you should also stroll the streets and check out the city's classic architecture. You should also visit the many museums in Sao Paulo, most notably the Museu de Arte Sao Paolo (MASP), for their extensive collection of paintings by the masters like Rembrandt, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Monet.
You should also take a trip down to the Historical City Center. Even though industrial and commercial development have replaced much of the old-style buildings, there are still some that are worth visiting. And if you are into shopping and sampling the local Brazilian cuisine then you should go to the Jardins district, an area chock-full of beautiful residential buildings and shocks of greenery here and there.
If you are visiting Sao Paulo, then the only way to get there is via Brazil's busiest airport, Guarulhos International Airport. Guarulhus, also known to the locals as “Cumbica”, services almost a hundred thousand passengers each day, all going to different international and domestic destinations. There are lots of different ways you can get from the airport to your lodgings in the city, you can use the shuttle service, or the airport taxi; there are also plans for creating line that connects the airport directly to So Paulo's Metro system (subway), set for construction before the FIFA World Cup comes into town.
