Plan your Beijing Holiday

There are so many reasons to travel to Beijing. A sports enthusiast may go to tour the facilities that were created in and around this vibrant city for the 2008 Olympic Games. A lover of ancient history can enjoy the numerous and formidable ancient buildings and learn more about their cultural and historical significance. The Imperial Palace alone is comprised of 800 different and unique buildings. Be sure to buy your tickets to Beijing vey far in advance if you plan on coming during the Spring Festival. It attracts thousands of tourists every year.

The prime season for tourist travel to Beijing is during the summer months and then again during the Spring Festival. A good time to avoid the tourist influx and still have excellent weather is September and October. Cheap hotels in Beijing are also more abundant during this time. Spring is another excellent time to come, outside of the Spring Festival of course. Flight deals to Beijing are available throughout the year and are easy to find with Etihad’s Deals section.

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.
