On October 31, Guangzhou Metro announced a plan for the new Terminal 3 of Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport to be introduced into the Fangcun-Baiyun Airport railway, which is also the northern extension of Metro Line 22. It will be a part of the survey and design of the rail transit supporting project for the third phase of the Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport expansion.

It is worth noting that Guangzhou Metro revealed that Metro Line 22 will be planned as a cross-city express line, which will extend to Dongguan and then connect with Shenzhen. It will be the first metro line connecting Guangzhou and Shenzhen. It means that passengers from Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport could take Guangzhou Metro Line 22 to Shenzhen directly in the future.

According to the plan, Renhe Bus Station will be set as the starting point of the Fangcun-Baiyun Airport Railway Line. Passengers can transfer at Renhe Station on Metro Line 3, and then take the northbound train to Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport. The northern extension of Line 22 will pass through the three major terminals of Guangzhou’s Baiyun Airport, which is convenient for passengers to reach directly. The overall planned line length is 10.7km.
