Message for U.S. Citizens: Commercial Flights in Brazil

PLEASE REFER TO LATEST UPDATES HERE

Per the State Department’s Global Level Four Health Alert, U.S. citizens who live in the United States, and are temporarily overseas, should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.   

The U.S. Embassy in Brasilia would like to inform U.S. citizens in Brazil who plan to return to the United States that some regularly scheduled commercial flight options remain available departing Brazil for the United States.  U.S. citizens that wish to return to the United States are urged to do so as soon as possible as the travel situation is evolving rapidly and flight availability is subject to change.  Domestic flight schedules within Brazil are also being reduced significantly, and U.S. citizens currently outside of the international gateways identified below should also monitor their ability to obtain a connecting flight by consulting the website of their nearest airport.   

In addition to flight options shared in the Embassy’s message of March 24, the U.S. Embassy has learned of the following additional American Airlines flights will operate between Brazil and the United States:

  • March 26 American Airlines – Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) to Sao Paulo (GRU) 18:50-07:00

As messaged on March 24, as of March 25 at 5:00 p.m., the Embassy is aware of the following remaining available commercial flights from Sao Paulo and Rio to the United States. (Note: all flights subject to change. If you are booked on a flight and do not see it on this list, please check with your airline for the latest status information.) :
