Russian operator Aeroexpress has launched a new service connecting Kazan International Airport with the city’s central rail terminal.

From May 22, four trains a day will operate on the line in each direction, with further services to be added in June.

The airport link, which is served by new Siemens-build Lastochka trains, will help transport visitors during the 27th Summer Universiade – a biennial international university sports competition being held in Kazan in July.

Alexey Krivoruchko, chief executive of Aeroexpress, said: “The launch of Aeroexpress in Kazan has been eagerly anticipated by all of us, and required quite a long period of detailed preparation.

“We took a very serious approach to fulfilling our obligations and ensuring the quality of our services, and are pleased to announce that Aeroexpress trains in Kazan are fully ready to officially take passengers on board.”

Kazan has become the fourth Russian city to open an airport rail link, alongside Moscow, Sochi and Vladivostok.
