Being a very popular tourist destination, air transport in Brasil is
of a relatively good standard and is set to improve substantially.
The Brazilian government's initiative to develop the tourism
industry, has resulted in new major upgrades of some existing
airports and the construction of new ones.
Numerous airlines fly to Brazil airports from the UK
and other worldwide destinations, including both Tam and Varig,
Brazil's - national airlines.
There are a great many airports in Brazil northeast, some of which
have international status, while the extent of some might
just be airstrips. The following list of Brazil's international
airports might help you on your way toward planning your route
and ultimate destination for your Brazil travel northeast.

Domestic air travel Brazil Northeast
Brasil boasts an efficient network of Brazil airports that
effectively connects all major areas of this vast country.
Since many international air travel are not direct flights
to Brazil, the majority of travellers will need to go
through one of the main connecting hubs such as Sao Paulo, in
order to reach certain parts of the northeast.
You should also be aware that some domestic flights from Brazil
airports are treated as international flights. This is
because some passengers may be travelling from other South
American countries and have not yet cleared customs - unlike you,
upon your initial entry to Brazil.
You will nevertheless, still be required to go through customs and
immigrations for domestic flights upon arrival, although you will
not need to fill out another immigration form as you did upon your
initial arrival in Brasil. Simply produce the carbon copy you
were given then, along with your passport and Visa.
Domestic air travel from airports in Brazil is a common and
inexpensive practice, however, on the downside, be prepared to pay
departure taxes, owing to the sheer size of Brazil. On the upside,
you will be able to purchase duty free items at the airports in
Brazil that have international status.
The newest Brazil airport will be in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte.
Completion is expected in 2011 and it will be the largest in
South America and the 8th largest in the world, to meet the
growing demand from tourists.
On a final note, be aware that on International Brazil air
travel flights, only the first destination in Brazil will be
shown, despite the fact that the flight may go onto other
cities. Domestic Brasil airport's flight listings can also
be a little on the confusing side. Some flight listings
might only show the final destination city and not the other
city stops. You should rely on your flight number and
not just the Brazil city you are traveling to.
