Salvador is served by international non-stop flights from Frankfurt (Germany), Lisbon (Portugal), Madrid (Spain), and Paris (France). From Oceania and Asia, connecting flights from Santiago Chile (SCL) to São Paulo (GRU) are a good alternative. Salvador can also be easily reached by local direct flights from other major Brazilian cities that offer many international flight options, including São Paulo (Guarulhos International Airport – GRU), Rio de Janeiro (Galeão International Airport – GIG), and Brasilia (Brasilia International Airport – BSB).
The Salvador airport operates under very good meteorological conditions almost throughout the year, and the Brazilian territory is fully covered by a civil and air-defense radar system – CINDACTA (Centro Integrado de Defesa Aérea e Controle de Tráfego Aéreo). All flights are monitored until the end of the Brazilian South Atlantic air control area via satellite.
A shuttle service from the airport to the main hotel areas in Salvador is available at all flight arriving hours.
