Airports in Brasilia
Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport is generally referred to as Brasilia International Airport. It is the key entry point for those visiting Brazil's capital. The airport is just seven miles (11km) from central Brasilia and serves over 14 million passengers annually.
There are a number of passenger facilities at Brasilia International Airport. Some favourites include the airport's movie theatres located on the upper level. There are also gardens for passengers to stroll through. On the downside, the airport doesn't have great public transport options connecting it to the city. However, the airport is currently undergoing a major upgrade ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The airport is situated seven miles (11km) southwest of Brasilia.
Getting to the city
Buses and microbuses leave regularly from outside the terminal building for the main bus station in the city centre; however, taxis are generally the best option. Taxis are available 24-hours outside both terminals and the journey to the city centre only takes about 15 minutes.
