Air-Rail Link

Air-Rail Link provides the free, fast and convenient way to travel between trains arriving at Birmingham International Station and the Airport Passenger Terminals. Air-Rail Link operates every two minutes with a journey time of just 90 seconds.


When passenger operations moved to their present site in 1984, a new people mover was provided by West Midlands County Council and a consortium of manufactures to connect the Airport to the adjacent main line railway. MAGLEV, as it became known, was intended as a showpiece for the new technology of magnetic levitation. Unfortunately, further sales did not materialise and the system became increasing unreliable and expensive to maintain. In 1995 it was withdrawn and replaced with a shuttle bus.

However, the airport was committed to provide a replacement and so the search was on for a suitable system. Key considerations were reliability, ability to use the existing MAGLEV structure, and of course, capital and operating costs.

The chosen system, the Doppelmayr Cable Liner Shuttle, was announced in late 2000 and construction started in 2001. Although construction was essentially completed by early 2002, delays to start of construction of the new Interchange at Birmingham International Rail Station meant it was not possible to open the system until March 2003 when the Interchange was completed. The system was originally known as SkyRail but in 2004 it was decided to rename it Air-Rail Link. This gives a clearer indication to passengers what the system is designed to do.

The Air-Rail Link System

Air-Rail Link is a cable drawn system using tried and tested technology developed over many years to move people through mountainous terrain in the Alpine regions of Europe. However, the only system directly comparable with Air-Rail Link is the Mandalay Bay People Mover in Las Vegas opened in 1999. This has achieved a high degree of reliability and other systems of this type are planned. Air-Rail Link is attached to a cable which draws the vehicles along a steel guide way mounted on the existing concrete structure. The system is driverless but monitored from a central control room.

Air-Rail Link Key Facts

• Length of Guide way – 585.5m

• Maximum speed – 36kph

• Maximum accel/decel 0.4 m/s
