Belo Horizonte today has the third largest market for air taxis in Brazil. As a result of this, the capital of Minas Gerais boasts an incredible offer of jets and helicopters, in addition to having airports and helipads that are suitable for the most diverse types of travel, from short trips to international routes.
Having the capital of Minas Gerais as a base is a privilege in terms of logistics, since the city is just a few hours flight from important centers in the Northeast, Southeast and Midwest. The air taxi sector in Belo Horizonte focuses on the two main airports in the metropolitan area.
Located near the center of BH, Pampulha Airport (SBBH) is the main air taxi hub in the city. With no commercial flight operations since September 2019 and confirmation that the State of Minas Gerais will manage it from next year, the airport already has hangars and operations centers of renowned Brazilian air taxi companies in its structure.
The other option in the city is the Confins International Airport (SBCF). The great advantage of the equipment is precisely the possibility of connecting passengers to routes beyond Brazilian borders. In 2019, among landings and takeoffs, Confins operated 2,600 international flights, connecting Belo Horizonte to destinations such as Buenos Aires (Argentina), Panama City (Panama), Lisbon (Portugal) and Orlando (United States).
If the trip is a short distance and requires even more agility in operation, the capital of Minas Gerais is well served by heliports spread both in central areas and in the region of airports. In addition to Pampulha and Confins, another airport that operates helicopter landings is Carlos Prates (SBPR), which currently reserves instruction flights and is less than 10 kilometers from downtown Belo Horizonte.
When exploring the Flapper application, the user looking for a helicopter transfer will also be able to choose the Helicentro Zona Sul (SIVB), HeliBH (SJLY), Viganó – Raja (SNCR), Eco Aviação (SWAH) heliports as a starting point / destination, Cemig (SSWC), FIAT Betim (SWUT), in addition to the newly opened helipad at the top of Concordia Corporate (SDNZ), the tallest building in Belo Horizonte.
