Brasilia International Airport Information

Brasilia International Airport, often known as BSB is named after former Brazilian President Juscelino Kubitschek and was officially opened in 1957. It’s operated by the government agency Infrarero who also operate the other commercial airports in Brazil.

A busy international airport, Brasilia International serves over 14 million passengers each year. A major hub under development to be able to accommodate the large traffic it will generate during the 2014 World Cup slated to take place in Brazil, it’s direct international flights go to Lisbon, Miami, Atlanta, Lima and Rosario, Argentina. 400 flights arrive and depart from BSB daily.

Considered the most efficient airport in Brazil, it’s sometimes compared to a mall with its clean and contemporary architecture. Designed by Sergio Parada, who also designed the ultra modern Belem International Airport, it offers travelers a wide array of shops. There are 136 in total that sell anything from flowers to lottery tickets to gifts. There’s even a barber for those who need a haircut in transit. BSB offers just upwards of a 1,000 parking spaces. The complex houses 12 cafes, three banks, a currency exchange as well as a multitude of car rental agencies for those bound for the exciting surrounding area.

The capital of Brazil was once Rio de Janeiro, but in 1960 became Brasilia, and is actually shaped like a giant airplane. Driving on the streets of Brasilia is much less hectic than in other major Brazilian cities and is a good way to get around to enjoy some of its many attractions. The Congreso National Building that houses the senate is an architectural must-see that tourists visit year round. The same architect designed the close-by Catedral Metropolitana with its beautiful glasswork. Santuario Dom Bosco is a temple that provides a stunning view of the city and a relaxing space for joggers, cycling, rollerblading and skateboarders. The TV Towers is famous for being one of the tallest in the world. Enjoy one of the street fairs that take place there weekly. Only eight miles from the center of the city is the Parque National de Brasilia, a national park that has two healing mineral springs.

Aside from its landmarks and picturesque scenery, Brasilia is also a city with ample nightlife. You can find five star luxury accommodations as well as cheaper hotels. Buy a copy of Veja or another local publication to decide where to eat. The options are diverse and can span from old world Portuguese to the national dish, feijoada to take out Chinese.
