Airfare to Fernando de Noronha, Brazil
Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago in Brazil, famous for its pristine beaches, beautiful landscapes and interesting wildlife. It is located around 354 km (220 miles) offshore from the Brazilian coast. The archipelago has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because of its location, the archipelago is home to many endemic species. It is also home to one of the largest sea bird breeding colonies in the South Atlantic.
Sancho Beach is considered the most beautiful on the islands. You should plan to see the sunset and the full moon rising from the horizon. Dolphin watching, snorkeling, diving, swimming and trekking are also lovely things to try here.
The archipelago has never been linked to the mainland. It is served by an airport which receives daily flights from Recife and Natal. The flights are operated by Trip Airlines, Varig, TAM and Gol Linhas Aereas.
If you book online you can only find flights from Recife into Fernando de Noronha. There’s only one airline serving the route – Gol – and the prices are high (more than $850 round trip). However, it’s a better alternative than flying here from Brasilia or Sao Paulo (flights start at little under $2,000 round trip). And Recife airport is quite large, receiving daily flights from Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia as well as Atlanta, Miami (USA), Lisbon (Portugal), Madrid (Spain), Paris (France) and Milan (Italy). The airlines serving Recife include: TAM Linhas Aereas, American Airlines and TAP Portugal.
If you want to save some money, look for the cheapest flight into Recife (even if it’s a connecting flight) and then fly into Fernando de Noronha.
