Brasilia International Airport, known officially by the rather long-winded name Brasilia-Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport, serves the capital city of Brasilia in central Brazil. Located 11km (7 miles) outside the city, the airport is the main hub for the interior of Brazil and processes more than 14 million passengers each year.
Acting as more of a regional hub than an international destination, flights to Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport come mostly from other Brazilian and South American cities, with a few connections from North America (Atlanta and Miami) and Europe (Lisbon).
Known as one of the best airports in Brazil, the facility has a reputation for cleanliness and efficiency. Bonus offerings like movie theatres and gardens add to the attractions, although you’re unlikely to spend time here on a stopover unless you’re connecting from one of the smaller Brazilian airports. The only major complaints are a lack of transport options into the city.
Like all Brazilian airports however, the facilities are in the midst of an upgrade ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. A new second terminal has already been added.
