    Eduardo Gomes International Airport, Manaus, AM (MAO) is racing against time to complete their renovations to accommodate the World Cup traffic. Needless to say a mess. Given that volatile four games to take place in the as yet to be finished stadium.

    There are just two baggage conveyor belts in the baggage claim area as of last week ;)

    The separation between domestic and international gates at the departure lounge is through a glass door/partition. Given the infrequent international flights. There are three Lanches (a.k.a food counters/lunchonette) in the departure lounge serving below par sandwiches, but decent plate-of-the-day special.

    From the airport to the city center is fixed rate pre-paid taxi stand - It was BRL 58 fare as of mid October from Airport to City Center.
