Airports Near the Sao Paulo Indy 300
Streets of Sao Paulo – Sao Paulo, Brazil
Sao Paulo has three airports, one for international flights, one which is mainly regional and domestic with some international, and a third that flies domestic, but is quite small and a little out of the way.
The main airport is the Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) with 37 international and national airlines flying here to 23 different countries. From the United States, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta and LAN Peru all fly into Guarulhols airport, while other countries’ airlines include Air France, Air China, Japan Airlines, British Airways, Qatar Airways, South African Airlines, and more!
The Congonhas-Sao Paulo International Airport (CGH) also flies internationally, and was the city’s primary airport until 1985 when the Guarulhos was built to ease traffic. There are a more limited number of airlines that fly in and out of the Congonhas, and these include BRA Transportes Aereos, Gol Transportes Aereos, OceanAir, Pantanal Linhas Aereas, TAM Linhas Aereas and Varig. While these are some of the largest airlines in Brazil, it probably isn’t the best place to fly into on an international flight – you’re more likely to find cheap Sao Paulo flights elsewhere.
