AIRPORT RAIL LINKS TAKE OFF

As air travel continues to grow so does the problem of providing reliable and efficient transport between airports and the regions they serve. A number of cities have built airport rail links of one kind or another. While some have been successful, others have not--yet the number of links planned or under construction continues to rise. Good access to both in-town and airport stations is of prime importance, but high speeds are not as important as frequency. It is often better to plug the airport into the metro, so offering the widest possible spread of destinations, rather than providing a faster and perhaps more costly non-stop link to a city terminal which less than a third of air passengers will want to use.
