Hedonistic nightlife, plenty of cultural attractions and more than 18 miles of beaches make Fortaleza a great all-rounder to suit a variety of clients.
With a new service from Air Europa launching this December, getting to the capital of Ceara state in north-east Brazil should be easier than ever.

“We will be operating two flights a week from Gatwick via Madrid T1, which offers a smooth transition with no connecting terminal.

Sun worshippers typically flock to Iracema beach, the perfect spot to work on a tan by day, while an abundance of restaurants, bars and clubs ensures there is plenty to do in the evenings too. Recommend clients visit the Ponte dos Ingleses, which has been modelled after Brighton Pier, for sunsets and breathtaking views of the coast.
