Get to know about Internal or Domestic flights

In addition to simplifying your life, this will above all ensure the best possible cohesion between your flight schedules and your holiday program. Do not hesitate to contact us with your idea of an agenda.

However, it is interesting to see what you can find in your own country. First of all, because the TAM operates on both international and domestic flights and can sometimes be very competitive if you buy all your flights with them. Secondly because Air France and TAP sometimes have agreements with the Brazilian companies. The latest news is that TAP was purchased by Azul, which offers domestic flights throughout Brazil, further strengthening these agreements.

Warning ! Direct flights, even between regional capitals, are not always possible and it will often be necessary to go through Sao Paulo or Brasilia to catch a plane with multiple destinations for the least common connections.

Choose the right internal flights in Brazil

To work out the best internal flight from one place to another during your vacation, we suggest you read the advice below :

• Flight times: Avoid flights from 10:00 – 14:00 that block the whole day, choose earlier or later flights taking up half a day, either morning or evening to fit in with your chosen activities and to not waste time. Don’t forget to plan for time to reach the airport. For an internal flight, it is advisable to arrive 2 hours before departure.

• The number of stopovers: If possible, look for direct flights or stopovers that are not too far out. In fact, many connections are possible only through a stopover in Sao Paulo or Brasilia. Remember to check that your flights are in the same airport when going via Sao Paulo (Main airport: Guarulhos, secondary: Congonhas) Rio de Janeiro (Main Airport: Galeao (Tom Jobim), secondary: Santos Dumont) and Belo Horizonte (Main Airport : Tancredo Neves (Confins), secondary: Pampulha).

• The name of the companies that operate these flights: You must of course choose the same company from end to end to avoid having to pick up your luggage and proceed to check in again at each stop.

We do not provide international flights. You can find all the flights on the internet, however, if buying directly on the internet is a bit of a headache for you, especially if you buy tickets with multiple entrances, we recommend a human solution, the contact of one of our partners installed in France: Manuel, at Sultan Voyages in Nice tel: 04 93 87 72 07, it will make your life a lot easier.
