Cofins Airport Mini Guide
Who Travels to Belo Horizonte?
It’s usually people who need to be in this big city for business or tourists who are using it as a base to get to the smaller and more attractive colonial towns of Ouro Preto and Tiradentes.
The city has a lot for people to do when staying there including tranquil parks, a good amusement park and a tower called the Alta Vila which has spectacular views out over Belo Horizonte. For a city that prides itself on its careful planning and century old buildings, the Pampulha district is an eye opener. It's where architects were given free rein in the 1940s and built very modern designs.
How Easy is it to get to Tancredo Neves/Confins International Airport?
It depends where you’re travelling from. There are dozens of domestic flights to the city as well as flights from Miami
and Panama City
. If you’re travelling from outside the Americas then you have the option of flying direct from Paris
with TAM Airlines or Lisbon
with TAP Portugal
. Travellers from the UK can connect cheaply to either of the European hubs or fly to Miami and connect there.
What’s the Airport Like?
At the moment it’s a little shambolic in places. The airport has been operating at overcapacity for many years, handling nearly double the intended number of late. A much needed upgrade and extension is currently underway which should be finished in 2014 but which for now has added complications for travellers with parts of the airport closed for work. The parts that have been finished look exceptionally good and once complete the travel experience should be excellent. At the moment the terminal has a good range of facilities including a range of shops selling items including flowers, books, handicrafts and gifts, a pharmacy and a fashion store. There are banks and currency exchange facilities as well as ATMs. Wi-Fi is also available across the airport.
