Rio de Janeiro Airports for Private Jets
Rio de Janeiro is home to Galeão International Airport (SBGL, GIG), also simply known as Rio de Janeiro International, making it easy to reach via private jet. There are 13 ground handling companies at the airport, including 5 FBO providers for discreet VIP and business travel.
The airport was built by the Brazilian Air Force in 1923 and is the largest airport in the city. After World War II, international flights were relocated here from Santos Dumont Airport, leading to the opening of a new passenger terminal in 1952. By 1977 another terminal was built to meet growing travel demands, creating the (SBGL) Rio de Janeiro International Airport in the process.

Visit Rio de Janeiro
The lush mountains and golden beaches in Rio de Janeiro create some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. Whether you’re riding a cable car up Sugarloaf Mountain to check out the Cristo Redentor or basking in the sun across from the Dois Irmãos mountains, the sights are inspiring and dramatic.
However, it’s the sounds that provide a wild and create vibe – Rio de Janeiro is the home of Samba, which led to the creation of Bossa Nova, blending with other genres such as Choro, Sertaneja, Pagode to create a distinctly unique soundtrack for life in Brazil, one that is over 500 years in the making.
The perfect blend of these sights and sounds is achieved every February during the biggest party in the world, the Carnival.
Attractions & Landmarks
Rio de Janeiro is a massive seaside city in Brazil, famous for its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Christ the Redeemer statue, and Sugarloaf Mountain, a granite monolith where you can ride a cable car to its summit.
The city is also known for its favelas, or shantytowns. The Rio Carnival features parade floats, flamboyant costumes and samba, and is the largest celebration of its kind in the world.
Located in Zona Sul, the beaches of Copacabana are among the most famous and most beautiful in the world. The beach stretches for 3 miles, while dense residential areas and lush mountains provide a dramatic backdrop. The best shopping, nightclubs and theaters are all within walking distance.
Morro Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers Hill)
The Two Brothers Hill is situated behind the neighborhood of Vidigal in the south zone of Rio. Considered on of the more interesting hiking tours in the city, providing views of the Rochinha favela, one of the largest Latin slums. Views of Pedra da Gávea and Pedra Bonita are also enjoyed, in addition to Corcovado in the other direction. From the summit of the hill, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Rio’s beaches.
Sugarloaf Mountain lies on a peninsula stretching out from the mouth of Guanabara Bay into the Atlantic Ocean. You can ride a cable car to the top of the mountain for beautiful panoramic views.
Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor)
Voted as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. The Art-Deco statue is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and measures 98 feet tall – not including the 26-foot pedestal – with its arms stretching 92 feet wide atop the Corcovado Mountain. The statue was designed by French sculptor Paul Landowski in 1922, as was completed in 1931. Christ the Redeemer has become a cultural icon of Brazil, and a Christian symbol world-wide.
Museum of Modern Art
Rio’s Museum of Modern Art is located in Flamengo Park, and contains exhibitions, an art school, a theater and public services such as workshops and dining. Designed by Alfonso Reidy, the building features angled concrete ribs ordered in a row to support and enclose spaces hosting galleries.
The Municipal Theater can be found in Cinelandianear the city center. The theater was built late in the 20 th century and is considered to be the most important (and beautiful) theaters in Brazil. The design was inspired by Charles Garnier’s Paris Opera. The theater’s restaurant, Assirius, is located in the basement and features Assyrian décor.
You may have heard of a certain girl from here, perhaps to the tune of Stan Getz’s smooth tenor saxophone. Located in the Zona Sul between Leblon and Arpoador and adjacent to Copacabana, Ipanema is another famous beach, where samba, surfing, food and fashion all come together, so much so that Travel Channel awarded Ipanema with the title of “sexiest beach in the world”. By the way, “The Girl From Ipanema” would go on to become the second most recorded song in history. And for the record, the girl’s name is Heloisa Eneida Menezes Pais Pinto.
The city can get overwhelming at times, and if you’re looking to get away for a little, sign up for a tour of the Tijuca Forest. This tropical rainforest is also the largest urban forest in the world, covering an area of 32 square kilometers. You can enter the forest through the neighborhoods of Tijuca and Barra da Tijuca. Corcovado Mountain is located in the forest, site of the massive statue Christ the Redeemer.
The most affluent neighborhood in the area, Leblon is located next door to its sophisticated neighbor Ipanema. Leblon is also the name of its local beach. The area is very cosmopolitan and home to upper-class citizens, regarded as the most expensive in Latin America in terms of price per residential square meter. All of this means it’s a little more exclusive than other neighborhoods, but it’s also a little quieter and relaxed, too.

Dancing and music are incorporated into every aspect of the carnival. Anyone can participate in street festivals – the only thing it takes to join in on the fun is to jump in. Elegance and extravagance are usually left behind, but while the parade is taking place in the Sambadrome, upscale Carnival events take place throughout the city, including balls held in the Copacabana Palace and beach.
