Brasilia J.Kubitschek Intl

Brasilia, Brazil

About The Airport

This is Brasilia's main international airport and an important domestic and regional hub, that was refurbished for the World Cup in 2014. Its full name, Brasilia-Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport is a bit of a mouthful, and it is sometimes reduced to just Kubitschek. It has 2 terminals - Terminal 1 is also known as Main Terminal and Terminal 2 comprises a South Pier for domestic flights and a North Pier for international flights. Although they are under one roof, the two terminal entrances are connected by a shuttle service. Kubitschek Airport achieved a 5-star rating in the 2017 On-time Performance (OTP) Ratings, compiled by the UK-headquartered OAG airport statistics database.


Free Wi-Fi is available at the airport.

Healthy Travel Tip

To stop your feet and ankles from swelling – and to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis – keep moving during long flights. Take a stroll around the cabin when you can, change position in your seat, and do little exercises like pressing your feet down on the floor, and bending and straightening your legs.
