How to arrive to Zaragoza

Your best options, in decreasing order of convenience are:

1. Flight to Madrid or Barcelona + High speed train AVE to Zaragoza

  • In Madrid-Barajas Airport, take a taxi to Atocha Train Station (30min, around €25).
  • In Barcelona Airport, take the half-hourly suburban train to Barcelona Sants (20min, €2.20 at the ticket vending machines).
  • AVE trains run hourly from 5:50 to 20:40 and arrive to Zaragoza in ~1h30min. Allow at least a 2h margin between flight arrival and train departure. We recommend that you buy and print your tickets in advance at (switch to English at the bottom-left. Renfe publishes the final train schedules 2 months in advance). You can also contact the conference travel agency at to request that they buy your tickets.
  • If you arrive to Madrid-Barajas later than 18:30 you can still make it to Zaragoza taking a coach from Barajas terminal T4 to Zaragoza (3h45min, €15, last coach at 1:15AM). Book and print your ticket in advance at or use the ALSA ticket vending machine (exit from T4 to the bus stop area and look to your right).
