Three future railway lines to EuroAirport

Three railway lines will travel to EuroAirport beginning in the mid-2020s. The coordinated schedule agreed upon by authorities in Switzerland and France means that trains will depart from Basel to the airport every 10 minutes.

The lines S2 (from Liestal to Mulhouse), S4 (from Laufen in the canton of Basel-Landschaft to EuroAirport) and TER 200 (from the Basel SBB railway station to Strasbourg via Mulhouse) will each travel every 30 minutes to EuroAirport

According to Trinationale S-Bahn Basel, the cantons of Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and Solothurn as well as Région Grand Est in France came to an agreement on the service for the new railway routes to the Basel airport. 

A corresponding memorandum of understanding was signed by Hans-Peter Wessels (member of the government of Basel-Stadt), Sabine Pegoraro (president of the government of Basel-Landschaft), Roland Fürst (member of the government of Solothurn) and Jean Rottner (president of the regional council of Région Grand Est). 

As the three lines are coordinated with each other, trains will depart from Basel SBB to EuroAirport every 10 minutes.

EuroAirport is not yet accessible by train, and the bus service is now reaching its limits. The new line between St-Louis and Bartenheim and the EuroAirport station will significantly improve its accessibility and reduce travel times. The federal council earmarked a cost contribution for the project at the end of September due to its considerable benefits. 

The new offer will ensure a high frequency of traffic while at the same time better connect the urban agglomerations to the airport. It will also alleviate the current S-Bahn endpoints at the Basel SBB railway station.
