Shin-Aomori Station is the northern terminus of the Ōu Main Line from Fukushima via Akita (a distance of 486.3 km (302.2 mi)). It also forms the northern terminus of the high-speed Tohoku Shinkansen line from Tokyo (a distance of 674.0 km (418.8 mi)), operated by JR East, and the starting point of the Hokkaido Shinkansen to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto (a distance of 148.9 km (92.5 mi)), operated by JR Hokkaido.
The conventional Ōu Main Line has a single island platform, serving two tracks. In addition to regular Ōu Main Line trains, the station serves two round-trips per day of regular Aoimori Railway trains, as well two round-trips of the irregular Resort Asunaro (direct to Noheji and the Ōminato Line). Upon the opening of the Tōhoku Shinkansen extension on 4 December 2010, the station became the southern terminus of Hakuchō Limited express services to Hakodate via the Tsugaru Kaikyō Line, which ceased upon commencement of the Hokkaido Shinkansen in March 2016.
The shinkansen station, opened on 4 December 2010, consists of two island platforms serving four tracks. The platforms are 263 meters long and capable of handling 10-car trains.
Previously, Shin-Aomori Station was an unmanned station consisting of a single side platform for bi-directional traffic.

Shin-Aomori Station opened on 1 November 1986 as a station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR). With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East. Work on a new station building began in July 2007, and was completed in 2010 ahead of the opening of the Tohoku Shinkansen extension on 4 December.
The Hokkaido Shinkansen to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto opened on 26 March 2016, and is being extended to Sapporo, due to open in 2031. Shinkansen services replaced the former Hakucho and Super Hakucho limited express services from March 2016.
