We are planing a trip for September 2011 which will include a few days at Juma Lodge. I am trying to organize our flight from Manaus to Rio and would appreciate any information others might be able to provide to assist our planning. I have checked the TAM and GOL websites and it seems that direct flights to Rio are very limited and only go during the middle of the night or very early morning (TAM 1235AM) (GOL 0410 AM). The times are inconvenient as we would be returning from Juma Lodge midday so would hate to have to wait until the middle of the night to fly to Rio and then we would arrive in Rio very early morning and not be able to check into our hotel until afternoon. TAM also seems to be more expensive. Are there other airlines that operate direct flights between Manaus and Rio or other direct flights that do not leave in the middle of the night? Any tips on getting the best fares?
