Florianopolis Mini Guide

Who Flies to Florianopolis?
Florianopolis is one of Brazil’s best but least well known holiday resorts. There are dozens of beautiful beaches surrounding the city. The city itself is built partly on the mainland and partly on Santa Catarina Island and has plenty of beautiful colonial architecture. People come here to swim, to surf in the clean waves that crash onto the beaches and to enjoy the delicious Portuguese influenced food that includes copious amounts of seafood caught fresh in the warm Atlantic Ocean.

How Easy is it to get to Florianopolis Airport?
Although the airport is an international one, the only international flights are from countries that border Brazil. Whilst that doesn’t help travellers from outside South America, it does give you a range of options for connecting hubs with Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Brasilia, Santiago and Sao Paolo all having connecting flights from Europe and the UK.

Florianopolis Airport

What’s the Airport Like?
It’s a very busy airport serving over three million passengers each year and has received upgrades over the years to deal with the increasing passenger numbers and a range of holiday charter flights from Uruguay, Chile and Argentina which required raising the standard of the airport to international status. The last upgrade was over thirty years ago and in places the airport is beginning to look a little tired. The airport can take another million passengers before reaching capacity but this number is expected to be reached within four years. There are 500 parking spaces outside the airport with thirty check-in desks inside. Aircraft can dock at any of fourteen gates, nine of which can handle large aircraft. Inside the terminal there are dozens of shops and restaurants. You’ll be able to shop for clothes and shoes, jewellery, confectionery, gifts and much more. Eating at the airport can be anything from a coffee and a sandwich to a steak with wine. There are also banks, currency exchange outlets and postal services. All in all, it’s got probably everything you’d need for your time there.
