Congonhas Airport - CGH

São Paulo, Brazil (BR)

Getting into Sao Paolo

Take the subway

The Congonhas airport is located only 8 kilometres south of downtown São Paulo. Therefore many options exist to get into the city center:


Congonhas is connected to the São Judas subway station (blue line) via a 20-minute bus ride on line 675I.


Remember that São Paulo has a very bad reputation for its traffic situation. So Taxis from Congonhas to hotel zones and business districts cost anywhere from USD 15 to USD 40, depending on the traffic.
