Zaragoza Airport

Zaragoza Airport is an airport near the city of Zaragoza (also called Saragossa) in the autonomous community of Aragon, Spain. The airport is situated 10 kilometres southwest of Zaragoza, 270 kilometres west of Barcelona, and 262 kilometres northeast of Madrid. It resides at an elevation of 263 metres (863 feet) above mean sea level. Runway 12R/30L has a concrete surface and measures 3,718 metres x 61 metres (12,200 feet x 200 feet), while runway 12L/30R has an asphalt surface and measures a length of 3,024 metres (9,921 feet). Zaragoza Airport is owned and operated by Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea. It is a joint civil-military aerodrome, as it is home of the Spanish Air Force 15th Group. In addition, the airport was used by NASA as a contingency landing site for the Space Shuttle in case of a Transoceanic Abort Landing due to its long runway.

Zaragoza is the capital city of the Zaragoza province and of Aragon. It is situated by the Ebro river and its tributaries, the Huerva and Gállego, near the region's centre. The fifth biggest city in Spain, Zaragoza occupies a total area of 1,062 square kilometres and, as of January 2010, has a population of 702,090. Despite not being at the top of the tourist destinations in Spain, Zaragoza is a warm and inviting city with plenty of activities for visitors: eating, sightseeing, and shopping among them.


The new terminal building of Zaragoza Airport was completed in March 2008. As of February 21, 2008, the departure and arrival flights for the airport have been operating from the new passenger terminal, which was built adjacent to the former terminal building. In the arrivals building, there is a tourist information point open from 9AM to 9PM. The information centre entertains questions from anyone regarding information about Zaragoza or Aragon. The other new facilities, like public car park and taxi ranks, are duly signposted.
