Rio de Janeiro–Antonio Carlos Jobim Airport (IATA: GIG, ICAO: SBGL), popularly known by its original name Galeão Airport, is the main airport serving Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is the country’s second-busiest international airport. It is named after Praia do Galeão (Galleon Beach), located in front of the original passenger terminal (the present passenger terminal of the Brazilian Air Force) and where in 1663 the galleon Padre Eterno was built; and since January 5, 1999 also after the Brazilian musician Antonio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim. Galeão Airport is explicitly mentioned in his composition Samba do avião. It is the largest airport site in terms of area in Brazil.

Since August 12, 2014 it has been operated by the concessionary Rio Galeão, a consortium formed by the Brazilian investor Odebrecht and Changi Airport Group, with a minority participation of the government owned company Infraero, the previous operator. The new concessionary has been using the brand name RIOgaleão – Aeroporto Internacional Tom Jobim.

Check in was pretty organized. AF flight was delayed 1 hour and 30 minutes.Ticketing desk staff was rude by the time I told her I was going to miss my connection flight with a separate ticket.
★★★★☆
4 5 1
Facil distribucion de puestos de despachos, en la sala de preembarque uno disfruta de buenos locales de compra pero hay momentos es que esta se divide, para facilitar el transito de pasajeros, mediante puertas corredizas y puede no disfrutar de todas. El wifi es libre y con buena calidad.

If you really need to come to Zikaland, come through São Paulo - GRU. It is by far the less awful airport....
★★★★☆
4 5 1
It evolved a bit since it was privatizated last year, with new shops and toilets. Immigration, bagage claim and customs were really fast, guess it is because my flight was the only arriving on the International area of T2. There was, indeed, a long queue for taxis, an old problem of this airport.
★★☆☆☆
2 5 1
It was exteremely hot after leaving the plane, problems in the air conditioning are often. Long line for passport control (even for brazilians) and an even longer line for Customs. Bagage claim was not so bad as it used to be. Toilets not clean as usual and lots of taxi drivers shouting trying to call your attention when leaving for arrivals area.
★★☆☆☆
2 5 1
I was arriving with KLM and connecting to a domestic flight with GOL. Considering football championship happened in 2014 and Olympics are scheduled for 2016, the arrival facilities in GIG were pretty terrible. First, the arriving passengers have to queue in a tiny corridor for immigration. It's a very tiny and hot corridor. Then you pick up your bag and walk through what literally looks and smells like a pig sty. The building is obviously very old and not well taken care of. Then passengers queue again for customs in similar conditions. Queueing anywhere is a hassle, but at GIG was really bad.
★★★☆☆

Terminal 2 do Galeao estava muito quente, quase nao havia facilidades para os passageiros, e tbm os fingers estavam bem quentes devido a alta temperatura no dia. Economia de lampadas porem terminal mais quente devido a quantidade excessiva de vidros no telhado
★★★☆☆

Far from the city, it can take more than two hours to arrive. Check-in wasn't complicated, although it takes some time. There is some food and services options in the common area, but in the boarding area it is limited to one bar and a couple of soda machines. Toilets are not always clean.
★★★☆☆
3 5 1
Fast immigration and customs. Not too much services in both Terminal 1 and 2. The airport is quite far from the city center so the best option is taking a cab. Be careful with illegal taxis, use the booths to pay in advanced and get your tickets. The cheapest is Aerocoop. There are also special buses for Downtown, South Zone and Barra da Tijuca. Nowadays there is also the BRT system heading to West and North Zone, connecting the Airport with the subway and the suburban railway.
★★☆☆☆

Concrete hell, quite small for main intl. airport for city of that size and importance. Staff doesn't speak English. Check-in broke down, KLM counter wasn't any helpful, but big thanks for the nice and helpful man at the check-in, he made my day.
