Airports in Salvador Da Bahia
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.
As Brazil is the host for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the Salvador
Airport is undergoing a number of further improvements. It has a
VIP airline lounge as well as a number of shops and restaurants for
passengers with a few hours to spare.
The airport is located 17 miles (28km) north of downtown Salvador de Bahia.
