Rio de Janeiro has two airports – the main international airport is Galeao International Airport and the smaller one is Santos Dumont.

Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (GIG/SBGL)

Galeão International Airport, officially named Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport, is the main international airport serving one of Brazil’s most famous cities, Rio de Janeiro. The airport is in Governor’s Island located 18km/11 miles north of Rio de Janeiro.

The airport has two passenger terminals and has newly opened a separate private terminal for business aviation.

Operational: 24hrs


Rio de Janeiro-Santos Dumont Airport (SDU/SBRJ)

Being a smaller airport with a shorter runway, Santos Dumont Airport is primarily for domestic and business aviation flights. It is located just 8.5km/5 miles of downtown Rio de Janeiro.

Although it is the second airport serving the city, due to its size, it is limited to only 23 flights per hour. It does not have any separate facilities for business aviation but the airport provides discreet procedures for VIP passengers.

Operational: 06:00 – 23:00 Local time – slots restricted


“One Way” prices include the costs of the aircraft flying back empty.

Shorter return trips of up to approximately 2 – 5 days (depending on length of flight) will only be marginally more than a one-way cost as operators will likely layover at the destination airport thereby only occurring overnight and crew costs. However, once the return flight goes over a 4 or 5 day duration then pricing will be based on 2 x one ways.
