Zaragoza Airport is located in the north of Spain in the province of Aragon, just 10 kilometres to the south-west of the main city, 270 km west of Barcelona, and 262 km northeast of Madrid. Zaragoza is the region's capital standing on the banks of the Ebro River
Zaragoza Airport also handles a number of military flights and is an important freight distribution centre. In 2014 it recorded a total of 418.576 passengers with 7.039 flight operations.
A new terminal opened in 2008. It has a futuristic design giving the illusion of waves and skylights and creating a huge amount of light in the passenger areas.
If you are planning on catching a bus into the centre then there is one which stops outside arrivals and goes to Paseo Maria Agustín. It also stops at Plaza Imperial and the railway and and bus stations. It departs at regular half hourly intervals on Mondays to Fridays from 06:15 to 23:15 and on Sundays and public holidays once an hour from 6:15 to 23:15. Alternatively you can catch a taxi from the rank which costs between €15-25.
There is no rail service at the airport but you can get high speed AVE connections to cities including Madrid (1 hour 15 minutes) and Barcelona (1 hour 30 minutes) or local cercanias commuter trains.
Zaragoza (pronounced Saragassa in English) is steeped in local history with fascinating local customs,great food gastronomy and spectacular tourist attractions including and the Basílica , Cathedral and Palace. La Seo, the Aljaferia are well worth a visit as they are great examples of the Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon.
If like me you love looking around local markets then there is a street market every Sunday from 09:00-14:00 in the Plaza de San Bruno which has around 75 stalls selling antiques, paintings, crafts, and food. The larger Rastro de Zaragoza with 450 stalls is open on Sunday and Wednesday from 10:00-13:30. If you are driving into the city centre then you can leave your car in Parking Sur Expo.
