The Salgado Filho International Airport connects Port Alegre to Brazil's major hubs and the wider South American continent. A renovation project will be undertaken before the 2014 World Cup to lengthen the runway. The airport is around 4 miles from Port Alegre centre and buses and taxis are on hand to transfer passengers to Port Alegre city.

The Port Alegre Metro system also services the airport. The underground system is the best way to get around the city and is a relatively modern service. Extensions were built as recently as the year 2000 when over 2 miles of track was added. The subway is complemented very well by an extensive, modern and comfortable bus service. The bus system will be further expanded in the south of Port Alegre in time for the 2014 World Cup.
