Station layout[edit]

Platforms of Airport Terminal 2 Station, JR platform on other side of tracks

Airport Terminal 2 Station is shared between East Japan Railway Company (JR East) and Keisei Electric Railway. There is a common concourse on level B1F of the main Terminal 2 building and then platforms below, using double track originally intended for the Narita Shinkansen. JR East has the northern platform and Keisei the southern platform. The station opened on 3 December 1992. A second track for Keisei trains opened on 14 November 2009, as part of the construction project for the Narita Sky Access Line. When Skyliner trains began operations on the Sky Access Line on 17 July 2010, the Keisei Line platforms and concourses were segregated: One portion for Sky Access trains (including Skyliner), and the other portion for Keisei Main Line trains. Passengers not using the Sky Access Line must pass through a second ticket barrier prior to entering the platforms. The purpose for this is to enforce the separate fare structure that will be in place for Sky Access trains.[1]

There is a security checkpoint between the railway station and the terminal building proper where baggage may be inspected and identification (such as a passport) must be shown.
