One cannot buy tickets online with these Brazilian domestic airlines unless you have a Brazilian credit card and a CPF (a Brazilian Tax Number). Therefore, you’ll need to contact a travel agency in order to purchase a ticket.

Air travel within Brazil has become increasingly expensive over the last couple of years. Further complicating matters, Brazilian airlines price based on availability. This means that as fewer seats are available, the price for the remaining seats rises.  Therefore, the sooner you buy your air ticket, the better price you are likely to get. Moreover, as so many people fly into Salvador for Carnival, both international and domestic flights fill up quickly. If you wait too long to purchase your airfare, you may not be able to find a seat and if lucky enough to find one, you’ll probably be unlucky enough to have to pay an exorbitant price for it. Moral of the story: buy early, be happy later.
