VIP lounges at Guarulhos airport: find out how to access – 12/06/2023 – Tourism

Previously restricted to business class passengers, VIP lounges experienced a boom in 2023. At Guarulhos airport alone, every two months, on average, a new space of this type was opened.

The wave of openings responds to an increase in the number of passengers (the number accumulated until October grew 21% compared to the previous period) and also to the expansion of access to credit cards that offer the benefit (see at the end of the article how to obtain it) .

With more eligible passengers, the lounges have become increasingly full – as have the main international destinations. Therefore, some now offer scheduling and others have even more restricted access, creating a kind of “VIP of the VIP”.

But despite the veneer of exclusivity, waiting for the flight like a “very important person” is only worth it if the perks compensate for the cost of access, which is not always free: it can cost money, even if it is as an annual card fee.

See a guide to the VIP lounges in Guarulhos. Unless otherwise indicated, all have an open bar offering alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
