Arrivals Hall

When you arrive to Zaragoza Airport you will be redirected to arrivals building hall, it´s a little more new than the departures building. Here you have access to the tourist office and the car hire offices.












As you will see there are 4 companies, Hertz, National Atesa, Avis and Europcar.

2 are closed cause maybe there isn´t any booking at this moment. But they have the cars outside ;-) don´t worry.

You can wait here for the bus, for your friends or take a break (there are 2 vending machines) reading new information about Zaragoza and its new Expo 2008.

When you go outside, the taxi stop its in front of you, and they use to be there for you, for your serve. The cost of the taxi service rounds 16-20 euros single.












If you have a car hire booking made previously you will take the car at the same parking like the Taxis. The parking is not too big cause there aren´t too much bookings yet at the Airport, but it´s predictable that will be much more than now.

Is really cheap RyanAir?

The first thing that you think when you enter the ryanair´s website is that you are going to get the best price to fly to Zaragoza from London. But the last time I´ve checked for flights from London to Zaragoza my face went white mode hahaha.

Here is an example:
From Mon 22 Oct 2007 - London Stansted (STN) - Flight 2634
119.99 GBP Wow

From Zaragoza to London Wed 24 Oct - Flight 2635
Another 119.99 GBP

Plus:

Baggage total 4.00 GBP
Amount of insurance 7.00 GBP
Priority boarding total 4.00 GBP
Total 15.00

Oh my! It´s really expensive.

Are the taxes the problem? I don´t know but, look at this...

If you pay by credit card, add this:
Credit Cards 2-3 €
Debit cards 0.70-1



Be alert for the special offers, be lucky. And forget to go when you want, fly when they want.

Live Flights Arrivals at Zaragoza Airport

The new Zaragoza Airport Terminal

Aena is improving the infrastructure to adapt and modernise the airport for the 2008 Zaragoza International Exhibition (Expo2008Zaragoza).

The works began on May 2006 and will end on January 2008. It´s expected that the actual flow of passengers will be increased not only for Expo2008, cargo and PLAZA and the strategical situation of Zaragoza makes this dream more real.

New passenger terminal:

To Expo will be more than three times the space for travelers. It will rise from the current 4,300 square feet to a glass building 16,250 meters spread over two floors and a basement of 7,000 meters dedicated to changing rooms and warehouses. The new terminal will have the capacity of 1,000,000 passengers a year.

The works of the terminal will cost 22.7 million euros. With six gates and 12 posts billing, the building may receive up to one million passengers a year. To achieve this figure, nearly three times more than the 381,849 in 2005, the airport will seek the support of low cost airlines, said its director, Felipe Rivas.

Look at the actual image:











1,356 parking spaces

Urbanization will be rebuild to allow better circulation and parking for about 1,300 vehicles: cars for 1030, 100 for employees, 8 for buses, 130 for rental vehicles, 28 parking spaces and 60 quick stop in row taxis. The works will boot after the summer and will cost 4.8 million euros.




Other improvements

Largest platform .- The planes will gain 50,000 square meters for parking, will have 150,000 in total. There will be site for six ships and more cost 6 million.

New control tower .- Aena will invest $ 3.5 million in a new control tower, which will be ready by 2009.

Access road .- The improvements (new firm, wider shoulders ...) will be ready by 2008.

Cargo - Plaza - New AVE Train Station

Actually the most important traffic is thanks to cargo flows and TNT is the unique company at Zaragoza Airport that afford Express services.
