aviation Munich Airport gets better S Bahn connections


By 2028, the airport’s S-Bahn connection to downtown Munich is to be improved by a new million-euro project.

The contract has been dry since yesterday: With the signing of an implementation and financing contract by the Bavarian Transport Minister Christian Bernreiter and Klaus Dieter Josel, the DB Group representative for the Free State, the course is set for the construction. The « Munich West Airport transfer structure » has a volume of 125 million euros, as the ministry announced in a press release. Of the approximately 125 million euros, the Free State pays around 44 million euros – the rest of the administered federal government and Deutsche Bahn. As soon as the federal government gives the green light, construction can begin in autumn 2023.

According to the information provided, the project, which also includes the construction of an electronic interlocking (ESTW), should make it possible for trains to travel on the S-Bahn lines S1 and S8 on the routes that converge there without mutual interference. This would increase the quality of operations and enable additional mobility offers to and from the airport, it said. The ESTW should go into operation in 2024/2025, followed by the commissioning of the flyover structure in 2028.

« The improved rail connection from Munich Airport to the city and to the whole of Bavaria is taking shape, » says Bavaria’s Minister of Transport, Christian Bernreiter. For four years, regional trains from the direction of Upper Palatinate and Lower Bavaria have been able to reach the airport directly via the Neufahrner curve. The construction work for the extension of the railways to the east has also recently started. « And today we are giving the go-ahead for a new building that will ensure trouble-free traffic on the existing S-Bahn lines at the airport. »
