Spotting At Rio (GIG)

Fri Jul 28, 2000 8:45 am

Anybody have any tips on spotting at Rio Galeao Inernational Airport? Inside, or outside, the terminal buildings?

I'll be their Sept. 22 thru 30, from EWR on a Continental DC-10-30, then to EZE on a AR MD-88.

Not all who wander are lost....

On Terminal 1, there are two viewing areas located on the upper level. Both, located at both extreme sides of the terminal, are indoor with glass windows. One overlooks the domestic area plus the Terminal 2. The other, on the right end, lets you look at international aircraft parked on the jetways below. Both provide great views of taxing aircraft and one of the main runways behind. On the same level there is a cafeteria/restaurant that also provides windows for spotting, located in the middle of the two viewing galleries.

I don´t know if Terminal 2 has a viewing area.

Boa Viagem,
