Narita Airport Station (成田空港駅 Narita Kūkō eki?) is an underground train station located beneath Terminal 1 of Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba, Japan. The station is shared between East Japan Railway Company (JR East) and Keisei Electric Railway.

Station layout[edit]

The JR East portion of the station has one island platform. The Keisei portion of the station has two island platforms: one serves one track (No. 1) and the other serves two. Each of the two tracks of the latter has two positions for trains, which are separately numbered (one is numbered 2 and 4, and the other is 3 and 5). On 17 July 2010, the Keisei Line platforms and concourses were segregated: one portion is 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]

History[edit]

Originally built for the planned Narita Shinkansen, the station opened on 19 March 1991.[2] Before this, there was also a station named Narita Airport Station, which was served only by Keisei and connected with the airport terminal by bus. The former station was renamed Higashi-Narita Station on the same day the present airport station was opened. 

On 17 July 2010, the same day that Skyliner trains began operations on the Narita Sky Access Line, the layout of Keisei Line platforms and concourses was changed. For details, see "Station layout" section above.
