Sao Paulo’s Major Airport

When flying out of Sao Paulo, a passenger will travel through the Guarulhos–Governador André Franco Montoro International Airport, GRU. Previously known as Cumbica Airport, the airport was renamed after the former Governor André Franco Montoro in 2001. A number of its amenities are shared with the São Paulo Air Force Base of the Brazilian Air Force.

When it comes to transporting passengers, aircraft operations, and cargo handling, the grand facility has been ranked Number One in Brazil. GRU is also the busiest airport in the nation. As an added bonus, the Tropic of Capricorn goes directly through the southern tip of the airport.

There are immediate plans to spend millions remodeling the Guarulhos International Airport in preparation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as well as the Summer Olympics in 2016. The preparations include the construction of new taxiways, as well as constructing a new passenger terminal. The new terminal will add another 12 million passenger capacity to the 17 million that exists now. Meanwhile, the main runways will be widened to access the new Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8. Even the parking terminals will be expanded.

Airport Transportation in Sao Paulo

When you need to get to Guarulhos International Airport, you can take the facility’s own highway. The Rodovia Hélio Smidt Highway connects GRU to two other main highways, Presidente Dutra Highway and Ayrton Senna Highway. A Guarulhos resident can easily access the Rodovia Hélio Smidt Highway from Monteiro Lobato Avenue.

A passenger can also take advantage of Airport Bus Service, as well as the taxi stands located outside of each terminal.
