Towards normal, São Paulo-GRU reopens terminal 1


GRU Airport, the concessionaire for São Paulo-Guarulhos Airport, announced that Terminal 1, which had been closed due to the downturn in operations caused by the pandemic, will reopen on November 9.

The reopening will give new life to commercial, dining and parking facilities that had been affected by the COVID crisis. According to our Brazilian media partner Aeroin, it is estimated that more than 5,000 passengers will pass through Terminal 1 daily on Azul’s domestic flights.

“The reopening of Terminal 1 will increase our operational efficiency, allow companies to generate jobs and bring more comfort and convenience to all airport users,” said Gustavo Figuereido, president of GRU Airport.

It will also mean the restart of bus services connecting T1 to T2 and T3, as well as to São Paulo metropolitan trains.

Between January and August 2021, São Paulo-Guarulhos airport mobilized 13,639,004 passengers, or 48% of the total during the same period in 2019. On the domestic segment, the recovery has already reached 66%, with 11,966,323 passengers, while the international segment is at levels of 16%, with only 1,672,681 passengers, a consequence of the multiple restrictions that governments around the world have imposed on passengers from Brazil.
