Airport train station info please

Hi all,

We are travelling by train to the airport and wondered how far the station is away from Terminal 1. Is there a rail link actually at the airport itself, and is it walking distance to the check-in desks?

Yes it's in the airport. The only way to get her is to walk. Just follow the signs. One work of warning - it is a bit of a hike and you can't take luggage carts all the way. If you bags are heavy make sure they have their own wheels.

The station is centrally located between terminal 1 and 2.

When you arrive you either get the lift or escalators up 2 floors (1st is road level) to the walkway.

You can take trolleys if you use the lifts. There are small posts erected at foot of escalators to stop you taking trolleys up. For Terminal 1 head East (back to platforms and turn left)

On the walkway / bridge there are moving walkways which take the strain of the walk.

Its probably 400/500 yards to the terminal building

As the last poster said, the station is midway between the two terminals, reached by elevated covered walkwways (with moving walkways to hep speed the journey). See this map...
