With departures every 15 minutes from Paddington Station, London's Heathrow Express offers 15-minute direct service to airport terminals. This is just one of many such airport express trains serving major cities around the world.

The existing Metra North Central route could be expanded with a train departing every 15 minutes for a less than 30 minute trip to the airport.

Metrolinx, Toronto's regional transportation agency, has built a similar connection between Toronto's Union Station to Pearson International Airport.
