I thought it would be helpful to open up a thread on the transition from the existing Augusto Severo Int'l Airport to the new Greater Natal Int'l/Sao Goncalo do Amarante. There is very little information about the construction progress on the airport and connecting roads in the English-speaking media, thus it would be great if some locals would post updates to the thread from Brazil's news outlets providing information on the transition from old airport to new..
The new airport is slated to open in April 2014. The connecting roads may not be finished until May 2014. Obviously, the World Cup will bring tens of thousands of visitors to Natal in June 2014.
Any information is helpful, as the transition will certainly impact flight schedules, airport transfers, and other parts of visitors' itineraries. I doubt online travel guides will be able to update information for visitors in such a short amount of time. Thanks!Edited: 11 March 2014, 12:59
