Aeroporto de Guarulhos - GRU

The International Airport of São Paulo (IATA code GRU, ICAO code SBGR) is officially called "André Franco Montoro International Airport" after the name of a former governor of the State of São Paulo, but it is popularly known as Guarulhos Airport (from the name of the municipality where it was built) or Cumbica Airport (after the district where it is located). It is the busiest airport in Latin America, having served about 39 million passengers in 2015.

The airport is located 25 km (16 miles) from downtown São Paulo.

GRU terminals

This airport has currently three passenger terminals, numbered 1, 2, and 3, according to their order along the airport access road when arriving from the city.

* Terminal 1 (checkin A) is the smallest and simplest. It has only domestic flights, and as of July 2016, only two airlines operate there: Azul and Passaredo. Terminal 1 has no jet bridges and no direct access to the other terminals, which can only be reached by a free shuttle bus.

* Terminal 2 (checkin B, C, D, E) is the oldest and largest, and for many years was the sole airport terminal, containing two wings. It has the majority of domestic flights and to Latin American destinations, as well as a few intercontinental flights.

* Terminal 3 (checkin F, G, H) is the newest and most modern. It has only international flights and concentrates most long-haul intercontinental traffic, in addition to the LATAM Group's Latin American flights. 

Terminals 2 and 3 are directly linked by a walkway. It is also possible to move between the three terminals using a free shuttle bus service, with intervals of about 10 minutes.

You can check at this link the companies that operate at each of the three terminals, and their destinations.
