Air Travel

Rio de Janeiro has two major airports: Galeão International Airport (GIG) and Santos Dumont Airport (SDU). GIG is the main international airport and SDU is primarily for domestic flights within Brazil. Several international carriers fly directly to Rio de Janeiro, and there are also numerous flight options through São Paulo and other international hubs.

Both airports are approximately 35 kms from the conference venue and designated hotels.

A pre-arranged airport transfer from and to GIG airport can be booked through Blumar. The cost for a transfer between GIG airport and the conference hotels or the conference venue is BRL 530.
