São Paulo: Air France-KLM Flights Starting at €389 From Italy (€489 with Luggage)

Sao Paulo, Brasilien

SkyTeam partners Air France & KLM are selling quite cheap tickets to São Paulo. Prices start at only €389 for flights to Lima. Luggage, however, is not included and would cost another €100 for everyone who is not a SkyTeam Elite status holder.


There currently aren’t any restrictions for vaccinated tourists wanting to enter Brazil. If you aren’t fully vaccinated, however, you’ll have to show a negative test result, no older than 24 hours before departure. The test result has to be in English, Portuguese, or Spanish.

At KLM & Air France, all tickets can still be rebooked without a change fee, but you will unfortunately now have to pay the price difference. You can also exchange the flights for a non-refundable voucher, valid for 1 year. Unfortunately, the option to have the value of the voucher paid out to your bank account no longer exists since March 1st. You can read the rules here.

There’s quite good availability until May 2022.

You can fly from the following Italian cities:

First, you would either fly to Paris or Amsterdam, before continuing your trip to South America on a long-haul flight to Brazil. Both airlines use a Boeing 777 for their flights to São Paulo, offering on-demand entertainment for each passenger, a USB port and a power socket – so pretty much your average economy class.

    For tickets starting in Italy you can skip the first segment without penalty as per an Italian court decision. Just make sure to have it issued in Italy and inform the airline that you will be missing the first segment. (Emirates has a separate website for this). Of course at your own risk
