to take into account
In most airlines you are allowed to carry, free of charge, a carry-on baggage of up to 10 kilos and a personal item such as a wallet. Luggage measurements are up to 35 cm x 25 cm x 55 cm. Keep in mind that the space in the passenger cabin is subject to the availability of the overhead compartments.
If you want to transport a pet, it must weigh less than 10 kilos (including the weight of the cage or transport box). Some companies allow them to be carried in the cabin on domestic and international flights.
Currently, the yellow fever vaccine is a recommendation in Brazil and is not mandatory. But it is in some Latin American countries.
All Brazilian airports restrict the entry of liquids, gels and aerosols transported in cabin luggage. Including passengers who make an international connection and who have made purchases in Duty Free from previous airports. In order to transport this type of objects, the following requirements must be met: the containers must have a capacity of 100 ml and must be contained in a transparent plastic bag, which can be closed (zipper type), with a maximum capacity of 1 liter.
