Airports in Salvador Da Bahia

Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport (SSA)


Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport is generally just known as Salvador International Airport. It has recently been upgraded and boasts a spotlessly clean terminal serving many air passengers entering or exiting Brazil.


The airport is located 17 miles (27km) north of downtown Salvador de Bahia.

Getting to the city

Public buses run from the airport to the city centre. Two kinds of buses are available: the 'executivo' and the ordinary bus which runs from just outside of the airport. The 'executivo' is a little bit more expensive, but more convenient for travellers with luggage. The Praça da Sé - Aeroporto route is the one to choose as it goes to the Rodoviária Bus Terminal. Tickets can be bought on the bus or within the terminal and the trip takes approximately 90 minutes.
