Travel Tips (for those coming from other countries):
The Salvador’s Airport is an International airport, however due to the big demand it is common to have difficulty finding tickets, or they have high fares.
A good option, is to try other entries, not so busy or with a bigger number of flights.
Cities like São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Natal, Fortaleza and Belo Horizonte already have international airports. The travelers need to check the fares of the domestic flights between these cities and Salvador, the final destination. These domestic connections can be bought together with the international ticket, or later in the case the travelers arrives some days before the festival. The average fares of these domestic flights can fluctuate between ? 180.00 and ? 300.00. It will be possible for the travelers to book their transportation from Salvador’s Airport to the festival. Soon more info.
