A ground handling facility at Rio de Janeiro International Airport, supporting trips throughout Brazil
On behalf of our team,
welcome to Rio!
My team and I recognize the importance of anticipating your needs, and will do all we can to ensure your visit to Rio is a success. We offer fast and efficient service, and are proud of our reputation for excellence.
As the second largest airport in Brazil, I am aware that it can be difficult to operate here. We have a long and successful history of working with the airport authorities, and use our local expertise and business partners to help ensure the smooth facilitation of your trip.
My team and I will assist you with everything from ground handling to customs and immigration clearance, and even a tour of our world-famous Sugarloaf Mountain. Nothing is too much trouble; your comfort, safety and satisfaction are always my team’s top priorities. We are available to you 24/7, and should you plan to travel further afield, we can also support operations at more than 40 Brazilian airports.
