Brazil: $311 Star Alliance Flights from Miami ($401 with Luggage)

Rio de Janeiro

Star Alliance member Avianca is currently selling cheap flights to São Paulo, starting at merely US$311 (~€286). Sadly, the price only includes a small personal item, i.e. nothing more than a small backpack. You can, however, add 23 kg of check-in luggage for only $45 in each direction, meaning that the entire trip, with 23 kilograms of luggage only costs $401 – an excellent price.

Another option is flying to São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro with Copa Airlines. While the ticket is a couple of dollars more expensive, flying with Copa has a couple of advantages: Copa serves food on its flights, Copa grants you a normal carry-on with its cheapest fare, and Copa lets Star Alliance Gold members check in one piece of luggage for free.

Our calendar displays all available dates for trips of 2–14 days for both routes. You can find both airlines on

With Avianca, you would first fly over 3 hours from Miami to Bogotá, from where you’d continue your trip, 6 hours to São Paulo. All flights are operated using either an Airbus A320neo (with 3-3 seating) or a Boeing 787 (with 3-3-3 seating). Copa Airlines, on the other hand, flies via Panama City and uses a Boeing 737 for all of its flights.

Search & Book

This Avianca fare will probably expire on July 2, 2023 – unless it sells out earlier. Copa’s fare even already expires on June 30!

As you can see in our calendar above, these prices are mainly available between August and November, and between February and May. If you want to travel to Brazil for more than 2 weeks, check out Google Flights to find all available dates.

Information & Tips for Brazil

Brazil is probably the country in South America that is most frequented by tourists. Whether it’s the carnival or the Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro or touring the Amazon, visitors will get their money’s worth here.

Traditionally, flights to South America and Brazil from Europe are quite expensive, but since a few years, there are increasingly cheap offers, especially with Iberia and TAP.

Best Time to Visit

Brazil is a vast country – so there is no such thing as an overall best travel time. It all depends on what you want to see. It is best to visit the cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo autumn and spring while the dry season fort the rainforest is from May to September.

Entry & Visa

EU citizens do not require a visa for stays of up to 90 days and can enter with a passport only. Note that, similar to the USA, that after your first stop in Brazil your luggage must be collected and brought through customs. Calculate accordingly when booking a connecting flight.
