Hey guys, nice topic Hardi.
ZRB2: Yes, the airport is in a higher ground, grandpa was in the Air Force and (according to my mom) worked for a long time in operations in CGH
and the area was builted to be like that.
The thing is, CGH
is quite old airport as GRU
is quite new, it opend in the early 80´s.
Due to it´s central position, CGH
is awesome for regional trafic here, since one can get to the business areas quite fastar than if landed at GRU
, and people that visited or live in SP
knows the shitty traffic we have.
is too small to get the CGH
flights, it would be the double of pax in GRU
was closed was redirected, and the acess to GRU
is horrible, there´s no way U can get to GRU
fast if U are on Av.Paulista, the finnancial center here, unless one uses a chopper, for ex.
will never gets GRU
traffic for just one reason, SP
is the economy heart of Brazil, and the most business are in SP
, way more than Rio and most headquarters of intl. companies are in SP
, not saying there isn´t others around Brazil, but most are here.
Government acts sometimes crazy here, and this hole Airport fever fells a bit odd sometimes. Like Belem do Para, wich is a airport in a state that doesn´t the same importance as SP
had a reform in the airport, and GRU
, that´s the HUB of Brazil didn´t get a decent or meaningfull reform or anything.
Infraer has to concentrate more to GRU
, there´s the need of a new and more modern terminal, a train to connect GRU
and the city, better facilities etc etc.
My point of view is: Brazilian government needs more professionalism on tings, and not letting the "air scenario" in the hands of military personal.
That´s the way I see it.
HArdi, next time U´r here I´ll pay U a Brahma.
