ARS Kualanamu: Medan City Railway Station to Medan Kuala Namu International Airport by Airport Rail Link

Connecting from my KA43 Sribilah Pagi from Rantau Prapat, I headed up to the Medan City Railink Station directly from Platform 1 of Medan Railway Station.

With my KA43 Sribilah Pagi arriving at 1.15pm, I had just 15 minutes to get my connection to the U24 Railink to Kuala Namu International Airport.

The Medan City Railink Station departure area is just upstairs of Platform 1 of Medan Railway Station.

I got my ticket directly from the ticket counter, paying in cash. Tickets at the Go Show counter cost Rp. 100,000.

My receipt for this train journey. Despite there being a seat number printed on the receipt, it seems like everyone was just taking an available seat since the train isn’t sold out.

Most if not all of the shop lots were closed at this level.

Once done walking through this level, a linkbridge is up ahead to cross over the driveway and ascend up to the departure hall of the terminal building.
