Guarulhos Airport

Airport travel guide

The main entry point of São Paulo for international visitors, Guarulhos Airport handles about 35 million travelers every year. Named after the suburb in which it is located, the airport is about an hour’s drive northeast of central São Paulo, providing easy access to Brazil’s largest city. The airport is also known as Governador André Franco Montoro International Airport and Cumbica Airport. The busiest in Brazil, it is not to be confused with the much smaller Congonhas Airport and Viracopos Airport, both of which also serve the wider São Paulo area.

Main airlines

LATAM Brasil, Gol Linhas Aéreas, Avianca Brazil, Azul Brazilian Airlines, United Airlines, and TAP Air Portugal

Terminals

Of the three passenger terminals, T2 (the orange terminal) and T3 (the magenta terminal) are connected to each other by a walkway, while both are connected to the much smaller T1 (the blue terminal) by a free shuttle bus. The numbering system of the terminals and gates was changed in 2015, but some online resources still refer to the old system. Make sure to follow the current system!

Location

São Paulo–Guarulhos Airport is about 28 km (17.3 mi) northeast of downtown São Paulo. BR-610, Rod. Ayrton Senna, Av. Morvan Dias de Figueiredo, and Av. Salim Farah Maluf are the main roads connecting the airport to the city center.

Car rental desks

Many are in the T2 and T3 arrivals halls. The exact location of your car rental provider's desk will be listed on your Confirmation Voucher.

Services and facilities

You’ll find coffee shops, bars, fast food outlets, and full-service restaurants, as well as many shops, including duty-free outlets, in both T2 and T3. There are also ATMs, currency exchanges, an on-site hotel, sleeping cabins, pharmacies, a first aid center, baby changing facilities in all three terminals, a massage salon, a manicure salon, a hair salon, a luggage wrapping service, an observation deck, and a post office. Luggage lockers are located in the T2 and T3 arrivals halls.

Nearest gas station

Posto Shell gas station, with the same address as the airport, is located at the entrance/exit of the airport complex and can be reached in about three minutes. However, travelers don’t give this station a high rating. Better-rated gas stations include Petrobras Serodio Auto Desk at Av. Candéa, 21 - Cidade Serodio, Guarulhos - SP, which can be reached in about 15 minutes. There are also many other gas stations near São Paulo–Guarulhos Airport and on the way to the city.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Rio de Janeiro (429 km / 266 mi). Brazil’s second city is often seen as the rival of Sao Paulo, so it’s up to you to compare the two and decide which one you prefer. The city is home to many cultural institutions, but its famous beaches like Ipanema and Copacabana are just as iconic.
  • Belo Horizonte (594 km / 369 mi). The capital of Minas Gerais state, Belo Horizonte has plenty for a traveler to enjoy. In addition to many large parks and public gardens, the city’s landmarks include the Museum of Arts and Crafts and the unique São Francisco de Assis Church.
  • Curitiba (435 km / 270 mi). The capital of the southern state of Paraná, Curitiba is known as one of the best and greenest Brazilian cities to live in and one of the country’s innovation hubs. The city has many things to see and do, but visiting Capão da Imbuia Wood/Natural History Museum would be a highlight of any visit to Curitiba.
  • Campinas (117 km / 73 mi). Located in the Sao Paulo state, Campinas is sometimes overlooked as a travel destination in favor of its larger and more famous neighbor. Those who do venture to this bustling city are rewarded with interesting architecture, Campinas Planetarium, and Bosque dos Jequitibás, a rainforest within the city.
  • Porto Alegre (1,163 km / 722 mi). Located in the far south of the country, the classy city of Porto Alegre has been heavily influenced by its Portuguese, German, and Italian inhabitants and by the Gaúcho culture that it shares with neighboring Argentina and Uruguay.
  • Asuncion (1,367 km / 849 mi). The capital of Paraguay, Asuncion is yet to be discovered by the masses of international tourists. A proud and relatively untouched place, it is home to large public squares, indigenous Guarani cultural centers, and nearby national parks. To go from Brazil to Paraguay, you’ll have to cross the international border, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it (also, find out whether you need a visa to enter either country).

The desk was tucked away on the ground floor, but relatively well signed. The hire cars are kept in the multi-storey car park nearest to arrivals, a very short walk away. On return to the airport it was a bit unclear which lane to go in to return the car, but there were limited options so i
