At the gate on this new Airport
As the other Brazilian Airports the immigration is very inefficient, with only 2 desks for non-Brazilian Passaports for that flight, so when you get out of plane run to be the first! This airport is new but the only 2 ATM machines (at Departures) only accept Brazilian cards… No comment Outside of the airport

Despite the delay TAP Portugal continues to have the best Crew and food onboard that planes! The business class experience is also a plus! A good option to fly to Brazil!
