Voice of Travelers to Porto Alegre

Airfare ticket to Porto Alegre

I fly to Porto Alegre very often to visit my extended family. It is my wife who always books my ticket to Porto Alegre, but last time she was in hospital so I had to find my ticket myself. I didn't know if my wife reserves it through an online ticket portal or at a ticket agent, so I researched several ticket portals online first. I found several flights to Porto Alegre. I decided to take the most simple route to Porto Alegre by buying first a ticket with Gol Airlines from Buenos Aires to Recife, and then another ticket to fly to Porto Alegre. After spending three days in Porto Alegre, I flew back on a direct ticket from Porto Alegre to Belem. I bought the return ticket with Avianca Brazil which is a great airline with good on board services.

The service aboard Gol Airlines to Porto Alegre was great.
