Congonhas Sao Paulo Airport (CGH)
(Sao Paulo, Brazil)
Housed in a newly renovated terminal building, Sao Paulo Congonhas Airport (CGH) is a busy facility that sees around 17 million passengers per year. The city's number two airport is situated around 8 km / 5 miles south of the centre of Sao Paulo and is also close to Diadema, Sao Bernardo do Campo, Santo André and Sao Caetano do Sul.
Congonhas Airport handles solely domestic flights, only serving a mere handful of Brazilian air carriers, such as Gol Transportes Aéreos, OceanAir, Pantanal Linhas Aéreas and TAM Linhas Aéreas. The larger Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport is the city's international gateway and is connected with Congonhas by shuttle bus.
To reach downtown Sao Paulo and other neighbouring locations, an Airport Bus service is in operation, along with some free hotel shuttles and taxis waiting outside of Arrivals. Whilst the Congonhas Airport does not provide business services as such, the nearby Caesar Business Sao Paulo Faria Lima Hotel does provide extensive facilities ideal for conferences and conducting business transactions.
