Line 11 of the Shenzhen Metro (simplified Chinese: 十一号线; traditional Chinese: 十一號線; pinyin: Shíyī hào xiàn; Jyutping: Sap6 Jat1 Hou6 Sin3) (also known as the Airport Line) (机场线; 機場線; Jīchǎng xiàn; Gei1 Coeng4 Sin3) opened on 28 June 2016.[1] Line 11 has a length of 51.7 km and a total of 18 stations. It connects the CBDs of Futian, Nanshan and Qianhai to Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport and onward to Fuyong, Shajing and Songgang suburban areas. It serves as both a regional express line from the west coast of Shenzhen to the city core area and an airport rail link.[2] Compared with the other lines of Shenzhen Metro, Line 11 has a longer spacing between stops for a higher speed service. Trains of Line 11 run at 120 km/h, up to 50% faster than other lines.[3] Construction of Line 11 started in April 2012 and test running begun at the end of March 2016. Trains run at a 10-minute frequency and take half an hour to travel from Futian to the Airport.[4]

History[edit]

In 2007, the "Shenzhen City Rail Transit Construction Plan (2011 to 2020)" was publicly announced for the first time, which included the plans for Line 11.[2] In the future, Line 11 will link into the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen intercity line.[5]

Rolling stock[edit]

The airport line will use 33 sets of Size A subway trains in eight car sets (no. 1101-1133) with a maximum speed of 120 km/h, including two six standard class carriages and two Business Class carriages. On 4 July 2015, the first train completed eight months of commissioning work,[6] and 10 trains have been delivered from CRRC Zhuzhou as of March 2016. The maximum train capacity is 2564 people.

Business Class[edit]

Business Class has transverse seating and curtains[7] for comfort and luggage racks for airport passengers.[8] To ride Business Class passengers have to pay a premium for their ticket, similar to First Class on the MTR East Rail Line. Business Class carriages are marked by dark grey floor tiles and yellow panels above the platform screen doors. Standard class carriages are marked by light grey floor tiles and white panels above the doors.[9]

Fares[edit]

Two kinds of fares are charged on Line 11. In standard class, the fare is equivalent to other metro lines. Business Class is three times as expensive as standard class. Standard class fares range between 2 and 10 yuan, with Business Class ranging between 6 and 30 yuan. Because of the possibility of transfers, this makes the maximum possible fare on the Shenzhen Metro 35 yuan. Business Class can be accessed through placing the Shenzhen Tong on a validator or through purchasing a yellow token (standard tokens are green).[10]
