Sao Paulo Airport Mini Guide

Sao Paulo Airport is also known as Sao Paulo Guarulhos Governor Andre Franco Montoro International Airport. No wonder people like to refer to it by the shorter name! Sao Paulo Airport is in fact a new airport which started operations in 1985 replacing the old Sao Paulo Congonhas Airport. It has the airport code GRU. It is the busiest airport anywhere in Brazil and the 36th busiest airport in the world. More than 21 million passengers use it on an annual basis. Because it is located in the district of Cumbica it has the nickname Cumbica International Airport.

Sao Paulo Airport

From the airport it is a short 25 kilometre drive to downtown Sao Paulo - the airport is actually in the nearby city of Guarulhos which is part of metropolitan Sao Paulo. The airport is very well connected with its own highway system. From the airport the Rodovia Helio Smidt is connected to the Rodovia Ayrton Senna (named after the famous formula one race driver) and the Rodovia Presidente Dutra. There are only two major terminals at Sao Paulo Airport. They have a staggering 260 counters between them.

However there are plan to add another two terminals to Sao Paulo Airport in the near future to cope with increasing passenger traffic. There are also almost forty airlines flying to nearly thirty countries on a regular basis. At such a busy airport you can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by prebooking your car hire well in advance.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Sao Paulo is an under-rated tourist destination as most tourists head for the beaches of Rio. There though is the cultural heart of modern Brazil, hire a car to see high rise buildings mingled with quaint streets of art galleries and theatres, skyline restaurants which tower over corner cafes and the opulence of the rich seen against the abject poverty of the city’s poor.

Things to do must include a meal at Restaurant Skye at the top of the Hotel Unique tower where you’ll eat some of the world’s best cuisine looking down on the lights of the city.
