This is most probably the worst International Airport I have had the misfortune to pass through. I was shocked at how bad it is. On arrival we landed evening time and waited nearly 2 hours at immigration as there were 6 European flights all in around the same time - Chaos! No AC anywhere. Finally got my case and made my way to the exit where we were met by a driver. Departure was a different story. On arrival at T1 we were met with a shoe shine boy outside who hassled us for money. Check in security and immigration passed relatively easy however when you are airside there is absolutely nothing inside apart from two over priced cafes and an even more over priced Duty Free shop. The building is falling apart and we couldn't see any renovations being done for the World Cup. Also no AC and the building stank. I suspect serious problems leading up to and during the World Cup and I pity any tourist or fan going to Rio (and possibly onwards) in the next 12 to 18 months as the airport is simply not capable of handling general passengers let alone anyone else. If I ever go back to Brasil I would avoid GIG at all costs.
