I know about the airpass available outside Brazil.
1. I think it's not that cheap actually, 400 euro (excl taxes) for 4 flights. Isn't it cheaper to book something while in Brazil?
2. Are most flight originating from Sao Paulo or Rio? That is, if I want to fly from Iquazu to Manaus or the Pantanal, do I first need to fly to Sao Paulo or Rio? And does this mean 1 flight (changing planes) or 2 flights?
Thanks for any detail!
As you mentioned, pretty much all domestic flights in brazil are via Rio or SP. Some of them require not one but 2 or 3 stops ( i have seen the route from manaos to iguassu falls via Brasilia, SP and Curitiba!! 3 stops!!) And obviously, the more stops, the more expensive it gets!)
The airpass might not be a bad idea if you are planning to fly 4 times, but just try to work it out for yourself before hand and see if how much it coudl cost (plus how long!)
The best airline to fly low cost with in Brazil is GOL (www.voegol.com.br)
Good luck! And let me know if you need further help!

I guess such an airpass is not really worth it actually, because I would only take a flight to distant places like from Iguazu to Manaus. But that means using 3 or 4 parts of the airpass, so the full 400 euro. I am sure it can be cheaper just showing up over there.
Otherwise, for short distances (direct flight, no stops) I don't use planes, but probably buses.
I think airpasses are not made for travellers to become rich, that's a fact!
