Transfer to/from the airport:

Zaragoza Airport is located 10 km from the city centre. The most convenient option is a taxi that will cost around €25 -30 and take around 20 minutes to the city centre.

Alternatively, the cheapest option is the airport bus stopping at Paseo de María Agustín 7, in the city centre (45 minutes ride) and outside the airport terminal. The bus costs €1.50 and runs every 30 minutes Mon-Sat and every hour on Sundays and holidays.


As most flights to Zaragoza only run once a day, it is sometimes more convenient to fly to Madrid or Barcelona airports, from where you can reach Zaragoza in less than 3 hours.

From Madrid Barajas Airport: go to Atocha RENFE train station either by taxi (30 minutes, around €30) or by metro (45 minutes, around €4,5) or by train (Signed posted as “Cercanias” leaving from T4 and takes around 40 mins) and then take the high speed train AVE to Zaragoza (1h10, around €50). A cheaper but not so comfortable alternative is taking a coach from company ALSA that runs between Barajas terminal T4 and Zaragoza every 2-3 hours (3h45 trip, single/return: €15/€26). If you are in terminals T1 T2 or T3, take the free airport bus shuttle to terminal T4. The bus to Zaragoza stops in the same place as the airport shuttle. Yes, there are no ticket counters, information posts, or timetables, but place yourself with your back towards the T4 terminal exit, look at your right and you will see the ticket vending machine of ALSA.

NOTE: If you already have your AVE train ticket, you can get the suburban train ticket (“Cercanias”) for free in the automatic vending machines, by typing the code for “CombinadoCercanías” that appears on your AVE ticket. 


The easiest way is to take the half-hourly RENFE C-10 suburban train from T2(if you arrive at T1 there is an airport bus which takes you to T2 station) to Barcelona Sants (20 minutes, around €4.50), and then take the high speed train AVE to Zaragoza (1h25, around €60).

By Train or Bus

If you have to travel to or from Zaragoza to any other place by train or by bus, there is a central station connected to the city centre and the airport by a bus line.
