Getting from Ilha Grande to Rio on a sunday morning ?

Hi!

Im leaving Vila do abraao on a sunday morning in march to get to Rio airport for a scheduled flight around 15.00-16.00 in the afternoon.

I guess it should be possible but when is the earliest boat and bus ?

Cheers,

Thanks for the info.

I also found this one which seems as the best alternative. I think the route - Abraão to Conceição de Jacareí is fastest and I hope the schedule is valid on sundays as well. Is it common with canceled ferries or many delays with domestic airlines ?

Which Rio airport are you going to? GIG or SDU?

I have 3 options to fly from GIG at - 15.05, 16.45 or 20.05 and 1 option from SDU departing at 15.45

Azul, Latam or GOL - which airline has the least amount of delays do you think ?

I've flown on all three and never had a problem with flight delays.

I'd advise you to book the 20:05 from GIG. Going from Ilha Grande to one of Rio's airports could take more time than you might expect. Traffic can sometimes be a real problem.

Rush hour in Rio is from 8 to 10 a.m. and from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays.

In general, there is hardly any heavy traffic on Saturday, Sundays and holidays, except the traffic that may form on the beach avenues (especially in Copacabana) or on the roads and tunnels that connect the beach districts (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon and Barra da Tijuca) to the suburbs of Rio.

Hi,

I´m still trying to figure out the best option to get to Rio GIG airport.

Greentoadbus leaves at 10.00 and Costaverdebus leaves at 06.30 and 09.40.

Do they both take the same route with a stop at Rio GIG airport ?

I would rather make it to GIG for a flight departing at 15.05 or 16.45 because if I take the one 20.05 I could miss the last bus/van transfer when arriving at Campo Grande.
