Transfers from Belo Horizonte Airport to Ouro Preto

by Traveler-from-NY Online Now Nov 18, 2008 at 4:37 AM

I will be flying into Confins airport, and I need transfers to Ouro Preto. What are my options, and what is the approximate cost? I have decided against using my travel agent for transfers due to the fact they wanted to charge me 412.00 USD. I would prefer not to use the buses, but if the bus is my best option, will I be able to bring large suitcases on board?

    I had send some information to you but I realize now you got rid of it. Then I am suggesting another motion.
    Since you will arrive at Confins Airport, use a bus/taxi to be moved to Pampulha Airport (around 30Km far from Confins).
    Get a ticket in Pampulha Airport to São João d'El Rey.

    As you may watch on the upper link TOTAL is a brazilian airway that serves Belo Horizonte (Pampulha Airport) and São João d'El Rey.

    http://www.total.com.br/

    So, when you land on São João d'El Rey you may buy a bus ticket to Ouro Preto.
    UTIL serves both towns. I have called up to São João d'El Rey bus station and the clerk told me the timetable is: 02:50AM or 6:00PM and the fare is R$44,00.
    UTIL is a brazilian bus company. The clerk told me those UTIL buses will come from São Paulo city. That's why the hours are so surprising.
    Note: Most of brazilians don't understand english fine so if you have a reasonable spanish will be good for you. You will use conversation at the airports to buy tickets , and, on Ouro Preto/São João d'El Rey bus stations as well. São João d'El Rey is around 115Km far from Ouro Preto.

    Good luck! Cassiovieggore
