Rio de Janeiro/Galeao - Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (GIG), often called Galeao International, is Brazil's largest airport. The airport is located on Governador Island, about 13 miles from the downtown area. Direct flights from major cities are available, but in order to obtain the lowest fares, you may want to connect from another larger South American city. Unfortunately, the sultry PA system announcements made by Iris Lettieri for the past 30 years are being discontinued some time in 2009.

Santos Dumont Airport (SDU) is located adjacent to the city's downtown area. SDU handles most domestic traffic, as well as military operations. You will not find this airport to be a viable option in most cases. Pilots even need special certification to fly here because the runways are some of the shortest on which Boeing and Airbus aircraft can land.
