Trains and destinations
trains serve various stations in the Greater Tokyo metropolitan area. Trains are formed of dedicated E259 series
6-car EMU sets, with all trains passing through Tokyo Station
, where services are coupled or uncoupled. Usually, a train from Ōfuna or Yokohama will be coupled with a train from Shinjuku, Ikebukuro or Ōmiya to form one train set for the remainder of the journey to Narita Airport (via the Sōbu Main Line
and Narita Line
). On the return journey, the reverse is true.
The majority of Narita Express
services do not stop between Tokyo and Airport Terminal 2 Station
. In the morning and evening rush hours, however, the Narita Express serves as a commuter express, stopping at Chiba
. The average time between Tokyo and Narita Airport is between 55 minutes and an hour.
All seats are reserved, with both Standard and Green (first class) accommodation available.
