In this post I’ll:
- Tell you what are the most common types of trips danes do when they visit Brazil
- Give you the estimated flight time from Copenhagen to the Main Business Hubs of Brazil
- Information about other uncommon but very relevant as business or tourism destinations
Hello everyone. Today I want to share some experience which some Danish friends who would often visit me or my wife in Brazil would go through. Because we have done this trip several time it has always been quite easy to support our Danish friends who were flying from Denmark to Brazil for their first time. Flying from Denmark to Brazil is a long journey. Not as long as flying to China though, but it definitely takes energy of you. The first and general question asked by our friends before flying would be how long the flight would take followed by what would be the best route to arrive?
Visiting Brazil for Business
If you are planning to visit Brazil for a business meeting the most common routes by business people are to either to fly to Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo. If you are going to São Paulo, the estimated time of flight (already including the connection) will be around 14 hours. The distance of Copenhagen to São Paulo is 10.426Km or 6479 miles. Rio de Janeiro on the other hand will take around 14 hours as well, and the distance is a little shorter, but not much. 9815 Km.
Unfortunately there are no direct flights yet from Denmark to Brazil.I believe that both Danes and Brazilians (including myself) should make more pressure in the airline companies so they can provide us this facility.
Other possible Destinations?
There are other upcoming cities in Brazil that Danes should be aware of when considering doing business in Brazil which offer excellent business environment as well just like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Additionally these cities have fewer companies than business hubs like São Paulo or Rio.
