 Passenger Guide

São Paulo/Congonhas - Deputado Freitas Nobre Airport, opened on April 12, 1936, is the most important domestic airport in the country. Due to a tragic accident in July 2007, it was decided to enlarge the two runways and eliminate combination flights, leaving only direct flights, in order to reduce its traffic. Since then, it is considered one of the safest airports in Brazil.
