Directions for your Recife Airport Taxi

Guararapes–Gilberto Freyre International Airport is one of Brazil’s busiest airports, serving the entire Northeast Region. It lies 11km southwest of the city centre, and the ride takes around 20-25 minutes, depending on traffic conditions.

After leaving the concourse, your driver will take Rua Desembarque Aeroport and Praça Min. Salgado Filho towards Avenida Mal. Mascarenhas de Morais. After going on this avenue for 8km, they will cross Ponte Motocolombó and follow Avenida Sul Gov. Cid. Sampaio. A couple of kilometres later, they will be in the downtown area, where they will use the local streets to take you to your exact destination.

Recife Airport Taxi Fares

The taxis authorised to pick up passengers at Recife airport are called “Táxi Especial” (Special Taxi) or “Táxi Aeroporto” (Airport Taxi). They are a bit pricier than common taxis roaming the streets (called “Táxi comum”) and apply fixed rates depending on the passenger’s final destination area. For instance, rides to the nearby seaside area Boa Viagem cost €7.20 (BRL 40), while a transfer to the site most tourists go to, the Old Town (Recife Antigo), will amount to €9 (BRL 50).

Even at the airport, visitors can walk a short distance and take a common taxi at their rank, if they wish, which is located outside the airport concourse.
