Zaragoza Airport (ZAZ) Information
(Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain)
North-east Spain's Zaragoza Airport was first established as a US Air Force base in the late 1950s. Today, Spain's own air force uses this airport's military training facilities. This hub also once served as a NASA emergency space shuttle landing site, thanks to its long runway and Zaragoza's year-round mild weather.
Zaragoza Airport is still primarily a civilian facility and it has taken less than a decade for its annual passenger traffic to increase from 225,000 to slightly over 750,000.
Seasonal flights to Ibiza
have just been added to the airport's already busy schedule. Passengers can use Wizz Air flights to reach the Romanian cities of Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest, as well as Ryanair flights to Brussels
, all year round.
