It’s been just over a year since the world’s first five-car APM system, the BOMBARDIER INNOVIA APM 300 system, opened at Dubai International Airport. Today the 1.5km elevated rail link system is providing a dedicated service for airline passengers travelling between Terminal 1 and Concourse D and throughout the first year of operation, almost 17 million passengers have used the APM, traveling a total of over 1 million fleet km.

The driverless APM system operates with the service-proven BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 communications-based train control (CBTC) technology, known for its high reliability, safety and short headways between trains. Together, the turnkey transit system has the capacity to transport more than 100,000 passengers daily.



“Bombardier has developed a high performing, energy efficient, fully-automated transit solution that provides a reliable connection for millions of airport passengers at this fast-growing, global aviation hub. It is an honor to receive such a prestigious award and to be recognized for the ongoing excellent work the team is doing in maintaining high performance.” Said Wolfgang Postler, Head of Bombardier Transportation APM Services Execution, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
