I am arriving on Latam Dec. 28 at Terminal 3 at 6:25 am. I have a flight on Avianca Brazil on Dec. 28, leaving from Terminal 2 at 10:55 am.going to Natal. How do I get from Terminal 3 to Terminal at GRU? Is there enough time to go through customs and catch my flight on Avianca Brazil From Gru to Natal? Thank you. Ann Marie Carr
I am not an expert, however, I've been into GRU 20 plus times over the last 30 years. You should have plenty of time to get through immigration and customs to your AV flight. You will likely gather your checked luggage after you go through immigration. Once you have your luggage you will go through customs and generally it is a breeze. You will then head for terminal 2, which is a long walk. If you have a lot of luggage the airport has free luggage carts. I believe you will be on the 1st floor when you leave customs. You will need to go to the second floor to check your bags and check in for your AV flight. Hope this helps.

I will be arriving from campo grande arriving at terminal 2 in GRU. My flight returning to canada leaves from terminal. Can I walk or is there a shuttle?

I have a very long layover - is there a hotel in the airport - terminal 3 I guess that we can use as a fast sleep for 8 hours?

Thank yoiu
Leaving from terminal 3 - sorry.
There is a shuttle - I suggest using it. There is a hotel within the secure area of Terminal 3 called TRYP by Windham.
Is there a shuttle or can I walk? How long will it take?
There's a shuttle bus you have to take.
