How to save on flights to Sao Paulo
Most often it is cheaper to fly into Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport than into any other airport in Brazil. If you happened to find a discounted deal into Rio de Janeiro or Brasilia you can choose that flight and then book a domestic flight into Sao Paulo.
You can save money on flights to Sao Paulo if you choose to travel during the low season. But the weather can end up being quite cold from June to September, leaving the shoulder seasons as best time to travel while still saving money on flights.
