Guarulhos Airport will have a second express train connecting to Sao Paulo

Travelers departing from Guarulhos Airport will have access to a

new metro rail line starting October 16, a new option in the comings

and goings of their itineraries. The long awaited Airport Express,

operated by CPTM (Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos),

will have its first departure at 10am, departing from Luz station.

The journey, all made by the recently inaugurated Line 13, will

connect directly to the Guarulhos Airport station with Luz Station

and offers transfers to several other Metro rail lines. According to

CPTM, the trip will last approximately 35 minutes. The ticket costs

R$8 (Brazilian Real) per way and can be purchased at both stations.

The Airport Express will run Monday through Friday, with restricted

operations. At Luz Station, the exits towards Guarulhos will be made

on platform 5 in five schedules: 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 10pm.

The return trip, leaving platform 2 of Aeroporto-Guarulhos station, will

be at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 9pm.

The Service called CONNECT that operates on the same Line 13,

connects the airport to Bras Station from Monday to Saturday and

has been operating since the beginning of the month. The ticket follows

the regular fare of the metrorail system, which currently is R$4

(Brazilian Real). In Bras Station it is possible to change to other metro

rail lines.
