[COMPLETED] 07MAR21 / 1600Z - Visiting the Smaller Rio de Janeiro Airport @ SBRJ

Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont Airport Flyout

Hello - Olá, and welcome to a flyout to one of my favourite all time airports in IF - Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont

Some information about the airport

Rio de Janeiro-Santos Dumont Airport is the second major airport serving Rio de Janeiro. It is named after the Brazilian aviation pioneer Alberto Santos Dumont.
It is located 2km for Rio de Janeiro city centre and right beside the famous Sugar Loaf mountain. It served 9.2 million passengers in 2018 and just serves domestic routes to other cities in Brazil. It is a focus for GOL Transportes Aéreos, Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras and LATAM Brasil.

The reason this is one of my favourite airports and that it really fascinates me is because it has one of the shortest commercial runways in the world despite 737’s and A320’s normally operating there. It’s runways, 02R/20L & 02L/20R are just 4,300ft long which make flying into this airport much more challenging and interesting!
