The 41.4km New Airport Line is China’s first 160km/h urban rail line. The line runs from Caoqiao, an interchange with metro lines 10 and 19, to the airport’s North Terminal, via a single station at Cigezhuang, which will ultimately become an interchange with Line S6.
The Caoqiao – Daxing North Terminal journey time is 19 minutes and Caoqiao and Cigezhuang stations have check-in facilities for passengers’ baggage.
CRRC Qindao Sifang has supplied a fleet of 12 type D trains based on its CRH6 main line EMU and the line is equipped with Automatic Train Operation (ATO).
The airport is also served by a station on the 78.2km Beijing – Bazhou high-speed line. The 250km/h section from Beijing West to Daxing is now in operation, with the 350km Daxing – Bazhou stretch due for completion in 2020.
The journey time between Beijing West and Daxing is 28 minutes.
