Since safety is our main priority at GOL, the sale of tickets for flights to and from Santos Dumont Airport has been suspended and the flights scheduled for that period will only depart from or arrive at the RIOgaleão – Tom Jobim International Airport, also in Rio.
Passengers with scheduled flights to or from Santos Dumont Airport during this period are being informed of the change to their flights and possible changes to departure times.
In order to avoid any issues, GOL recommends that all passengers plan on arriving at the RIOgaleão Airport well ahead of time.
For our passengers' convenience, GOL will provide free transportation by bus between the two airports. The bus will be available Monday through Sunday, from 4 AM to 11 PM, and will leave once every hour. At the Santos Dumont airport, the bus will leave from the only terminal, and at Tom Jobim airport, from terminal 2 (boarding area for Gate D).
If you have any questions, please check your flight information on our
website or on the GOL app. If you prefer, you may also contact our Customer Service Center at 0800 704 0465.
