Rail links between airports and city centers are being developed in response to the congestion of motorways that have traditionally provided such access. These rail lines can be integrated into the urban and suburban networks, but there is now a tendency to connect airport lines into the mainlines, thus extending rather substantially the area served directly by the air/rail services. This brochure gives an idea of the different systems adopted in 20 cities throughout the world and lists other projects which are in progress or are being studied.
