What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?

Travel from DC is long as there are no direct flights to Brasilia. You either fly via Houston to Sao Paulo and then on to Brasilia, or via Miami to Brasilia. Flight time is about 14 hours. - May 2020


Seattle. 8 hours to Miami, then another 5 hours from there. - May 2017


West Virginia, USA. The trip takes about 13-20 hours, depending on connections. The main flights out of Brasilia go to Miami, but often you are routed through Sao Paulo first. - May 2017


DC. About 15 hours. Usually São Paulo and/or Miami. - Mar 2017


Washington D.C. Between 14- 18 hours. Given Brazil's falling currency (Real), Delta is closing, TAM/Gol have fewer flights, etc. All that is left are American Airlines flights that are cheap and uncomfortable. They connect through Sao Paulo to get to the US. Without Delta, everything is changing and is more difficult. - May 2016

Washington, DC. 13-14 hours of travel, including a layover in either Miami or Atlanta before a red-eye directly into Brasilia. - Aug 2015

Home base is Washington, DC. Flights take 12 hours with one connection in Sao Paulo, or 10 hours with one connection in Atlanta. - Sep 2012


Washington, DC. One connecting flight in Atlanta or Florida, about fourteen hours. - Dec 2011
