Business aviation passengers benefit from the excellent offer of airport structures in and around Balneário Camboriú. In the city, there are three commercial heliports and a private one.

Airports near Balneário Camboriú
There are two options recommended for those with Balneário Camboriú as their destination – both about 30 kilometers away from the city center. To the north is located the Navegantes International Airport (SBNF) and, to the south, the Condominium Aeronáutico Costa Esmeralda (SDEN).
Navegantes Airport (NVT, SBNF)
Navegantes Airport is the best structured equipment in the region. An airport serving the Itajaí Valley, Navegantes has the capacity to operate landings and takeoffs for aircraft of the size of commercial aviation – that is, it is operational for a wide range of business aircraft, including the largest ultra-long-range business jets, such as the Gulfstream 650 or Global 6000. Passengers board and disembark through the executive hangar and have access to a beautiful VIP lounge, equipped with TV, conference room and various amenities. The trip between Navegantes and Praia Central, in Balneário Camboriú, takes an average of 35 – 40 minutes by car.
Porto Belo Aerodrome (SDEN)
Located in the city of Porto Belo, Costa Esmeralda has a smaller structure than Navegantes and serves only air taxi flights. With a runway of 1189 meters, the airport receives landings from helicopters, in addition to turboprops and small and medium-sized jets. Given the proximity, the Costa Esmeralda is the right choice for those staying at the Ponta dos Ganchos Resort. However, if the final destination is Balneário Camboriú, the transfer by car does not usually take more than 30-35 minutes.

Balneario Camboriu by Helicopter
For those who prefer to travel aboard a helicopter, Balneário Camboriú oozes options. There are four helipads in a city with lean dimensions. For this reason, travel between hotels and helipads is minimal, reinforcing the practicality of opting for the helicopter.
In addition to the Heliponto Helisilva (SJKD), which is private, on the Flapper platforms the passenger also has the Heliponto BC (SNTJ), which is the main operator in the region. Its owner, Diego Steffens, says that in high season, between December and February, the helipad can carry out 300 operations per month. “A good part of our customers come from Brusque, Blumenau, Joinville, Florianópolis and Curitiba”, he says.
O BC tem homologação para realizar pousos e decolagens noturnas, sendo capaz de atender modelos como o Bell 429. Na cidade, homologados pela ANAC, ainda há os helipontos Marina Beach Tower (SIHN) e Vianna III (SSJD). Os três modelos mais recebidos pelo Heliponto BC são os helicópteros monomotores, que voam a uma velocidade média que varia entre os 150 km/h e 210 km/h e possuem alcance médio de 2,5 horas de voo.
