Travelling from Madrid and Barcelona
If you are travelling from a city not served by Zaragoza airport, our recommendation would be to fly to either Madrid Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport or Barcelona El Prat airport and then take the high speed train (AVE) to Zaragoza from Atocha-Puerta station in Madrid or Sants station in Barcelona.
In both cases, the journey to Zaragoza takes about 1½ hours and one or two trains leave for Zaragoza every hour. It’s advisable to buy your train ticket online in advance, leaving enough time to get to the mainline station from the corresponding airport (1½ hours from the arrival time of your flight).
If you book your ticket in advance, the train ticket to Zaragoza also includes the shuttle-train service from Madrid Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport to Atocha station or from Barcelona El Prat airport to Sants station. At the ticket machines located at the both airport stations you have to use the ‘Combinado Cercanías’ reference number that you will find on your AVE ticket, in order to obtain the shuttle-train ticket.
Once you arrive a Zaragoza-Delicias station you can reach your final destination by taking one of the various local buses that leave from the station or by catching a taxi at the taxi rank outside the station.
There are also regular coach services from Madrid and Barcelona to Zaragoza, including a direct route from Madrid Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport to Zaragoza.
