Can anybody let me know if FOR is an international airport? I am asking because I might need to fly from MEX to FOR in February and want to avoid connecting at GRU. I am hoping there is a flight to FOR from PTY or from BOG. Even from MIA. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

FOR is an international airport but the only international flights operating to FOR are Europe bound charters. The only scheduled flight is TAP daily to Lisbon.
The best alternative I can think of, would be MEX-CCS-MAO-FOR but that would involve changing planes in CCS and MAO. RG flies CCS-MAO once a week and LB flies CCS- MAO twice a week. There are 5 daily flights between MAO and FOR and they include at least one stop at BEL. The route in flown by JJ/RG (codeshare), G3 and VP.

Thanks a lot for the info. I would have thought there were MIA-FOR or CCS-FOR flights. It is really bad that the northeast of Brazil is not well communicated with the rest of Latin America. Anyway, non-stop flights from GRU to FOR are only 3 hours and 10 minutes, and most flights from MEX to GRU are night flights, so perhaps going to GRU first is not so bad after all.
