Pisa Aeroporto railway station (Italy)

Pisa Aeroporto railway station (Italian: Stazione di Pisa Aeroporto) was a railway station within Galileo Galilei Airport (Italian:Aeroporto internazionale Galileo Galilei) (IATA code: PSA) in Pisa, Italy. A shuttle train service operated between it and the nearby main railway station in Pisa, Pisa Centrale railway station, although there was also a few direct services to Florence.

It was closed on 15 December 2013 to make way for the construction of a fully automated people mover, to be called PisaMover, which will operate services to Pisa Centrale every ten minutes. PisaMover is scheduled to come into operation in December 2015. In the interim there is a substituted bus service.[1]

Structure[edit]

Consisting of only two platforms, the airport station linked the airport with Pisa Centrale, the main railway station in Pisa, via a 1.445 km long railway line. The station was served mainly by regional rail services, most of them from Pisa Centrale. There were also some regional rail services to the airport from Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station.

The facility was classified by its owner, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, as category "Silver".[2]
