Galeão - Antônio Carlos Jobim International Airport better known as Galeão International Airport is Rio de Janeiro's major international airport. The airport has its name appended after the late Brazilian artist Antônio Carlos Jobim.

In 1985 the airport lost the title of Brazil's major international airport to São Paulo's Guarulhos International Airport, causing a drop in passengers to/from abroad. Nevertheless, Infraero built a second terminal at a cost of US$600 million, capable of handling 7.5 million passengers annually, more than doubling the airport's capacity. Since then, passenger numbers have been stable at about 4.5 million per year.
