Congress Index


The Congress is in Florianópolis, southern Brazil, which has its own airport called 'Hercilio Luz' (code FLN).

There are internal connections from Sao Paulo and Rio, you will have to change at one of those.

Most of the internal flights are run by TAM Linheas which is a subsidiary of Varig Brazil, the national carrier. It appears to work out cheaper if you use Varig for the flight into Brazil as well as the internal flight.

There is another internal flight with a budget airline, GOL. However they can only be booked directly, their website is only available in Portuguese and they do not accept credit cards from outside of Brazil - and most of their flights are from the other Sao Paulo airport, requiring a bus ride across town.

There are buses from Sao Paulo to Florianopolis which will be a lot cheaper than flying, but can take anything from 9 -12 hours..

The Congress shuttle bus is from Florianópolis, Hercilio Luz so you will need to give the arrival/departure times from there if you want to be collected and returned
