Airports near Barra

There are a variety of airports to choose from when visiting Barra. Here's 4 airports that serve Barra.

Salvador International Airport

This is the closest major airport to Barra, located just across the bay in Salvador da Bahia. It offers numerous domestic and international connections, providing flexibility and potentially lower fares. However, you'll need to factor in the additional cost and time of crossing the bay by ferry or bridge (around 30 minutes to 1 hour).


Porto Seguro International Airport

This airport is located about 700km south of Barra in Porto Seguro. It primarily serves tourists visiting the popular coastal region, so you might find good deals on flights, especially during peak season. However, you'll need to factor in the significantly longer travel time to Barra (approximately 10 hours by bus or car).


Rio de Janeiro International Airport

If you're planning to explore other parts of Brazil before reaching Barra, Rio de Janeiro might be a good starting point. This major airport offers a wide range of international connections and flights to Salvador. However, it's the furthest option on this list (approximately 1,300km from Barra) and travel time to Barra (including connecting flights) could be lengthy.


Vitória Airport

This airport is located north of Barra in Vitória, the capital of Espírito Santo state. It offers connections to major Brazilian cities and some international destinations. While flight options might be fewer than Salvador, it could be a good alternative if you find a convenient connecting flight and want to explore Vitória or the surrounding beaches before reaching Barra.
