The airport isn’t far from the city at all, so it’s best to fuel up before hitting the road. There are some El Cisne service stations on the Autovia A2 to the west of the city (and the airport). It’s worth driving past the airport exit, fueling up there, taking the next exit and turning back towards the airport.
Driving around Zaragoza Airport
The N-125 road runs past the airport. This connects to the larger Autovia A2, but also provides a toll free route into the city. The roads around the airport can be busy, especially during rush hour, so be prepared to hit traffic almost as soon as you leave the airport. We recommend choosing a car hire package that includes a sat-nav system; you can choose this as an option when you search. This makes getting in and around the city a lot easier, and saves a lot of stress.
