TELANGANA (Metro Rail News): Chief Minister of Telangana, K. Chandrashekar Rao, laid the foundation for the Hyderabad Airport Express Metro at the IKEA intersection on 9th December.
Once finished, it will reduce the distance between the city and the airport travel time to just 26 minutes. Additionally, a multi-location check-in facility will be provided.
In addition to serving as a vital link between the Aerocity in Adibatla and the planned Pharma City, the project will also offer public transportation to southern Hyderabad.

It will connect Mindspace Junction and Hyderabad Airport at Shamshabad and is projected to cost Rs. 6250 crores.
A special purpose vehicle called Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HAML) was established for the 31-kilometre Airport Metro line. It is a joint venture between Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC), Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority, and Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL).
NVS Reddy, the managing director of HAML, claims that the corridor will have more modern amenities than the Hyderabad Metro Rail. He wants to offer amenities superior to those at Gatwick Airport or Hong Kong.
