Airport Terminal 2 Station (空港第2ビル駅 Kūkō-daini-biru eki?) is an underground railway station located beneath Terminal 2 of Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba, Japan. The station is linked to Higashi-Narita Station by a 500 m underground passage. It is the first and only JR station to contain Hindu-Arabic numerals (rather than Chinese numerals) in its name.

The station serves both Terminal 2 and the nearby Terminal 3.[1]

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 uses the northern platform, which is to the side of a single track used for both inbound and outbound trains.

Keisei uses the southern platform, a single island platform divided in half crosswise by a metal fence to form four numbered tracks. Tracks 1 and 2, on the eastern half of the platform, are used for Sky Access trains including the Skyliner limited express service. Tracks 3 and 4, on the western half of the platform, are used for Keisei Main Line trains. Passengers not using the Sky Access Line must pass through a second ticket barrier prior to entering the platforms in order to enforce the separate fare structure for Sky Access trains.[2]

Track 3, used for Keisei Main Line trains bound for Tokyo, is only long enough to accommodate 6 cars; therefore two cars of each eight-car Keisei Main Line trainset open onto Track 1, the Tokyo-bound Sky Access Line platform. Keisei has installed special signage in this section of Track 1 to warn passengers not to board these cars.

There is a security checkpoint between the station exit and the terminal building where identification (such as a passport) must be shown and baggage may be inspected. The security checkpoint is only connected to the Keisei side of the station, so JR passengers disembarking at this station go through two ticket gates: one between the JR and Keisei stations, and one exiting the Keisei station. A future renovation of the station is planned to streamline the exit process for JR passengers.

Skyliner trains began operations on the Sky Access Line on 17 July 2010.
