Let's focus on the first step: which flight do I have to choose to fly to Manaus - Brazil?
If you are flying from the USA, nowadays we have two good recommendations.
1 - DELTA/AMERICAN/UNITED/CONTINENTAL from major US cities to Sao Paulo airport (GRU) then connection with code share (LATAM and GOL) to Manaus.
This is a good option for those using major US airlines with loyalty points or traveling business class. All major US airlines have direct codeshare - connection with Brazilian Airlines LATAM, AZUL or GOL for flights from Sao Paulo to Manaus. There are more than 15 daily flights from Sao Paulo to Manaus.
PROS: flying directly from major US cities, many flight options to GRU airport, and several connecting flights to Manaus, good in case of missed connections and delayed flights.
CONS: Flying over Manaus down to Sao Paulo and then north to Manaus. Add 6 to 8 extra hours to your flight.
2 - Flying from US to Panama city and taking COPA airlines short flight Panama City -Manaus.
This is a very good option since it is almost a straight north-south flying route from the US to Manaus. There’s several flights from major US cities to Panama City and the flight from Panama to Manaus is only 3:45min.
PROS: The shorter flight route between US and Manaus. Reliable route from Copa Airlines.
CONS: Only one flight per day serving Panama-Manaus route. Arriving late in the evening in Manaus.
If you are flying from EUROPE, actually we have many options from major European cities.
1 - Major European Airlines and also LATAM and AZUL are flying directly from many cities, like London, Paris, Zurich, Lisbon, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Madrid, Rome to Sao Paulo (GRU) and Rio de Janeiro (GIG).
This is a good option for those using major European airlines with loyalty points or traveling business class. All major airlines have direct codeshare - connection with Brazilian Airlines LATAM, AZUL or GOL for flights from Sao Paulo to Manaus. There are more than 15 daily flights from Sao Paulo to Manaus.
2 - A very good option is flying through Lisbon with TAP to Brazil on other routes instead of using Sao Paulo Airport as the main hub.
There are excellent options from TAP Portugal to Recife, Fortaleza, Brasila, Belem and them with code share to Manaus. Shorter flights can be found with these options.
If you are flying from LATIN AMERICA, actually we have many options from major Latam cities.
