Simon Calder's Holiday Helpdesk: Will our trips to Zaragoza ever get any easier?

November 22, 2012

Q Our daughter, her Spanish husband and two grandchildren live in Zaragoza - Spain's fifth-largest city and yet it's virtually inaccessible for direct travel from the UK. The fact that we are based in Northern Ireland only makes it worse.
