Have you heard about the acclaimed city of Zaragoza? Of its riches and glorious history? Do you want to pay a visit to Zaragoza? Zaragoza is known as a pilgrimage site where it is believed that the Virgin Mary, paid a visit to Saint James. Its architectural designs reflect both Islamic and Gothic architecture, a beautiful sight to behold; you can be sure. For those not in Spain, you will have to use the Zaragoza Airport, which is only fifteen minutes away from the city to get to be part of the pilgrimage or to enjoy the beauty that Zaragoza city has to offer.
Have you just arrived at the airport? Or are you worried about how to get to the city center once you have landed at the Zaragoza Airport? You don’t have to worry anymore. As I said earlier, the airport is only fifteen minutes away from the city center. More so, there are buses that operate between the airport and the city, making stops along the way. Lucky for you, they leave the airport every half an hour, and some are scheduled to coincide with flight arrival and departure times. Operation time runs from 6.15 to 23.15 on every day and once every hour from 6.45 to 22.45 on Sundays and holidays.

2. Parking at the Airport
The airport has two parking areas, P1, and P2. They are both open to the public and with the added advantage of having the chance to book online. You can book your slot in advance. The two areas are roofed so; the weather will not keep you from looking good once you reach your destination. You want to dress the part, don’t you? Another advantage that you will find suitable is that the two areas are strategically located near the terminal. P1 is a few meters away while P2 is a two-minute walk from the terminal. In short, they are both a walking distance away.

This is the second most important part for me. Good food can wipe away your worries and foul moods about the flight or brought about by the thought of leaving, even if it will be for a moment. There are two great self-service cafeterias. One is located in the public area while the other is restricted to the passengers only. The serve a variety of menus where you may find some local, seasonal produce. Helados Jijonenca, on the other hand, is an ice-cream parlor, cafeteria, and terrace that is also open to the public. It also offers a great view of the airport. A perfect place to spend your time as you say your goodbyes.

Yes, there is a post office at the airport. You can now send your postcard home telling them of a could be, a change of plans. You could also send you goodbye letters to those you didn’t get a chance to since you left in a hurry. If you have just arrived, get a postcard from one of the shops open and send it home.Let them know that you arrived safely at your intended destination. Let them be a part of your tour even though they may be miles away from you. A small piece of paper could bridge that gap.

Something I know that will get you excited. The airport has unlimited free internet just for you. For those who move with technology, get that phone and take those selfies. Share them with family and friends. Take time also, to do some research on the places you want to visit and make an informed choice. Confirm the time of your flight; you don’t want to be left behind. Keep tabs on your friends and loved ones wherever they are. Surf, surf and do more surfing.
