I had the privilege of landing at this airport on my first trip to Rio at the end of last year and the approach past Sugarloaf Mountain was spectacular.

Fantastic view!
is it an domestic airport only?

Aye, it's domestic only. It is awesome looking but also dangerous, it lacks a fully fledged ILS, it has only a localizer. So much that only captains are allowed to perform the landing procedures. A pilot friend of mine says that it's almost like landing on a carrier: the strip is quite short and if you mess up, you end up in the water. :)
