The Forrestfield-Airport Link project has delivered a new rail service to the eastern suburbs of Perth – with three new stations at Redcliffe, Airport Central and High Wycombe.

The Airport Line, as it is now known after launching on 9 October 2022, spurs off the existing Midland Line near Bayswater Station and runs to High Wycombe through twin-bored tunnels.

The full Transperth timetable is available here

The line makes access to Perth Airport quicker, easier and more affordable for residents and visitors alike.


  • Provide a viable alternative to car travel between the eastern suburbs and Perth
  • Encourage domestic and international tourism with improved access between Perth Airport and the city
  • Create additional rail capacity on the Midland Line in the inner suburbs of Perth
  • Revitalisation of the local community with improved land use planning
