Salvador da Bahia Airport Guide to Salvador-Deputado Luis Eduardo Magalhaes International Airport

Salvador da Bahia International Airport Terminal

Salvador da Bahia Airport was found in 1925, being initially called Santo Amaro do Ipitanga Airport. However, their facilities were rebuilt in 1941 thanks to both Brazilian and American governments for the participation of Brazil in WWII.

The airport changed its name another couple of times: In 1955 it was called Dois de Julho International Airport, to commemorate the independence of Bahia state; later on, in 1998, it was changed again by the present form: Deputado Luis Eduardo Magalhaes.
