see Airport Station. A Narita Express Train to Tokyo’s Narita
International Airport An airport rail link is a service providing
passenger rail transport from an airport to a nearby city; by mainline-
or commuter trains, rapid transit, people mover or light rail. Direct
links operate straight to the airport terminal, while other systems
require an intermediate use of people mover or shuttle bus. Although
airport rail links have been popular solutions in Europe and Japan for
decades, only recently have links been constructed in North America and
Oceania, and the rest of Asia. Advantages for the rider include faster
travel time and easy interconnection with other public transport, while
authorities have benefited from less highway and parking congestion,
less pollution, and additional business opportunities. Additionally, the
links benefit airports by drawing in more passengers via easy access.
Mass transit Airport Express Line, Beijing Subway For airports built
within or close to the city limits, extending mass transit urban rail
systems like rapid transit or light rail to airport terminals allows
full integration with other public transport in the city, and seamless
transport to all parts of town. Service frequency will be high, although
travel time is a drawback as the services make many intermediate stops
before reaching the city center and thus there may not be enough space
for the baggage commonly carried by airport-bound passengers.
Furthermore, luggage stowing facilities are not commonly found on mass
transit vehicles as their primary objective is to provide high-capacity
transport, as in the Airport, Inner West & South Line in Sydney,
Australia. A common solution involves building a separate people mover
from a mass transit station to the airport terminal (see below), often
using automated systems, allowing faster travel time and fare
discrimination, for instance Orlyval. Because they are solely dedicated
to passengers using the airport, luggage stowing facilities are more
likely to appear on these systems. The first rapid transit station to
connect an airport with a mass transit system was the Berlin U-Bahn’s
Paradestraße station which opened in 1927 as Flughafen (Airport) and was
built to provide direct access to Berlin Tempelhof Airport. The
connection between Tempelhof Airport and the Berlin U-Bahn at
Paradestraße was however revoked in 1937 and the preceding station Platz
der Luftbrücke was instead granted that connection and remained so
until Tempelhof Airport’s closure in 2008. Other early examples of mass
transit stations located at airports include the MBTA Blue Line’s
Airport station which is situated at Boston’s Logan International
Airport and opened for service in 1952 and rebuilt in 2004, and
Cleveland RTA Rapid Transit Red Line’s Cleveland Hopkins International
Airport station which opened in 1968 and rebuilt in 1994. Mainline rail
Frankfurt (Main) Flughafen Fernbahnhof Dedicated railway lines to
airports have become popular since the 1980s. In many cases, there are
stations at the airport terminal(s) for express, intercity and commuter
trains, allowing direct travel to the check-in halls. In most cases,
this solution requires the building of new track, whether it is a newly
built main line or a branch (spur) line) from an existing main line. A
cheaper option is to open a new station on an existing line, again
connected to the airport by people mover or shuttle bus (see below).
While this option is commonly chosen to reduce construction costs, it is
only feasible when the station is located within proximity to the
airport itself. Two early examples of mainline rail stations built to
serve an airport are Berlin Schönefeld Flughafen station (which opened
in 1951 and serves Berlin Schönefeld Airport) and Frankfurt Airport
regional station (which opened in 1972 and is one of the two railway
stations that serve Frankfurt Airport). Integration with intercity
services has produced alliances where airlines sell air tickets that
include the connecting rail service. Central Europe has seen integration
of high-speed rail into airports, with domestic and international TGV
and ICE services from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and Frankfurt
Airport. Because of this, many airport railway stations have received
IATA codes. Yet another option for airports is to use a high-speed
“airport express” train to the city centre, especially if the airport is
outside the urban area and some way from the mass transit system, but a
direct downtown service is required, such as Flytoget serving Oslo
Airport, Gardermoen. There are various ways this can be done: it may
operate on a combination of existing and newly built mainline rail or
mass transit track using a dedicated fleet of rolling stock designed for
airport service. These solutions often have the drawback of lower
frequencies (e.g. twice per hour), and often charge a premium fare
higher than other services, but are more likely to have luxury features
such as luggage racks, power outlets, Wifi, and washrooms. Most
dedicated railways use mainline trains and trackage, while mass transit
“airport express” lines are usually found in Asia, as in the case of the
Airport Express Line in Hong Kong. Other airports, such as London
Heathrow Airport, are served by both express trains and mass transit.
Shuttle In many cases, there is no train station directly at the
airport, usually because the infrastructure on which the service
operates makes it impractical to build such a station. When this
happens, a shuttle system is required for the last part of the journey;
using either a people mover (often automated, such as AirTrain JFK in
New York City) or a bus. The former allows low operating costs[citation
needed] and higher perceived quality; the latter does not require
specialized infrastructure to be built, and is often the preferred
choice at smaller or low-cost airports. Shuttles do not provide a direct
connection, and often involve a wait for a transfer to the next stage
of the journey. Thus their market shares are often lower. In some
airports, such as San Francisco International Airport, the rail link may
not serve some or all of the terminals or concourses directly;
passengers using terminals that lack such connections must use an people
mover or airport circulator to access their terminal. These circulators
typically also serve parking lots, and sometimes airport hotels and
off-site car rental locations. Connection types One-seat ride via
main-line train Commuter rail-type service directly from a city centre
to the airport, without needing to change trains and sometimes without
intermediate stops; Africa Casablanca Airport, Morocco, via ONCF.

people mover A hybrid solution adopted in some cities is a direct rail
connection to an airport train station instead of to the airport itself.
At the airport train station, the passenger switches to a people mover
or other train that goes to the airport terminals. The same system can
also serve passengers moving between different terminals and traveling
between the terminals and car rental lots or parking areas. Several very
large airports have rail stations near some terminals, but people
movers are used by many to get to some other terminals. Examples:
Paris-de Gaulle and Oakland. Europe Paris Orly Airport via Orlyval, a
people mover that connects to the RER network at Antony Birmingham
International Airport via a pair of light-rail vehicles, connects the

AirTrain to get to other terminals because of the airport’s large size.
Rail to bus to airport See also: Airport bus Another common arrangement requires the passenger to take a train (or metro) to a railway station
(usually) near the airport and then switch to a bus that goes to the
airport terminals. Most medium and large size airports have bus
connections from the inner city. This list only contains connections by
bus from a railway station strongly associated, by branding or by name,
with the airport. Asia Cheongju International Airport via shuttle bus

Airport – plans are being developed to extend the C-Train to the airport
in the northeast of the city in the long term. In the short and
mid-term Calgary International Airport: building on the success of the
Route 300 BRT Airport/City Centre and the construction of the Airport
Trail tunnel, there is an opportunity to provide improved transit
service to the airport. Enhanced transit service to the airport,
particularly rail based, is often viewed as a catalyst to becoming a world class city. To improve service to the airport will require
thoughtful work, coordination of plans and special access agreements
between the landowner (the Government of Canada), the tenants (Calgary
Airport Authority) and The City of Calgary.[16] Dallas-Fort Worth
International Airport – plans are being finalized to connect two routes
offering a one-seat ride: The DART’s Cotton Belt Rail Line. Initially
planned to open in 2013, 2016 seems to be more likely. The service will
run West to East, connecting Grapevine, Texas to Plano, Texas. The
FWTA’s TEX Rail. Initially planned to open in 2013, 2016 seems to be
more likely. The service will run Northeast to Southwest, connecting the
Airport to Downtown Fort Worth. Edmonton International Airport – an
extension of the LRT is proposed to connect to downtown. Las Vegas has
an ongoing discussion about extending the monorail into McCarran
