Arriving in Seoul

Depend on Etihad Airways for your next flight to Seoul. There is no more efficient way to get to the exciting land of exquisite beauty and culture.

Plan Your Seoul Getaway

There is so much to do in Seoul that a visitor never has to be stuck in his or her room watching TV. For instance, Gyeongbok Palace was originally built in the late 1300s. English and Spanish tours are available for visitors to learn more about Korea's architectural traditions, as well as the nation’s customs. Bukchon Village features two palaces, along with quaint cafés, restaurants and art galleries, such as the Art Sonje Center. The War memorial of Korea displays generations’ worth of guns, tanks and planes.

Nature lovers will love climbing the picturesque mountains known as Bugaksan peak. The friendly neighborhood of Itaewon is full of lively bars, clubs, restaurants and shops. People can buy furniture and art work, as well as tailored suits. People can then go out dancing at one of the hottest spots in Seoul, Club Volume. Similarly, the Namdaemun market contains a seemingly endless stretch of street-vendor stalls. For those looking to take a romantic stroll, Cheonggyecheon is a 5.8 km, or 3.6 mile stream with gorgeous waterfalls and dozens of overhead bridges. Of course, you can always hop on a Seoul City Tour Bus to take in as much Korean culture as you can.

Flying from Sao Paulo

The next time you need to fly from Sao Paulo Brazil, it is wise to rely on Etihad Airways. Thanks to top-quality service, every step of your trip will be a breeze, from the time you book your flight to the time you receive your luggage at your final destination.

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.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Sao Paulo to Seoul on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
