São Paulo–Guarulhos International Airport is the main international airport serving Brazil’s most populous city, São Paulo, and is located 16 miles (26 km) northeast from the city’s central district. Line 13 (Jade) is the new rapid transit line that just opened this year, which connects GRU Airport to lớn the Engenheiro Gourlat station. From Engenheiro Gourlat guests can then access Line 12 (Sapphira), which goes to lớn the central part of São Paulo. The airport bus service connects GRU lớn a number of different areas, including Congonhas Airport, Paulista and Augusta khách sạn circuit, và Tatuapé subway station. Otherwise, taxis are readily available, or car rental service is located in terminals 2 và 3. Travelers can also request an Uber.

GRU is one of Latin America"s busiest airports, frequently ranked only behind Mexico thành phố International Airport. It has 3 terminals, although Terminal 1 is just for domestic flights. Complimentary shuttle buses transport passengers between terminals, or alternatively, travelers can walk between terminals 2 và 3 (15-minute walk).

Donald’s (Terminal 2), and Subway (1 & 2). However, there’s also some international culinary diversity, such as Nagarê (Terminal 3) for sushi, Spoleto (Terminal 2) for Italian, La Bonbonniere"s French café (Terminal 2), và Cortés Asador (Terminal 2) for a nice sit-down, Latin American steakhouse experience. Other dining options include Frango Assado (Terminal 2) for fast food, Montana Grill (Terminal 2), and Viena (Terminal 2). If you have one meal, however, let it be at Cortés Asador or Rascal (Terminal 3), both of which afford a nice, sit-down meal that can be hard lớn come by at airports. 


Many of the restaurants I mention above are also travelers’ best option for grabbing a drink.
