CRH2A EMUs had been used for service in the initial operation stage. From February 2018, new CRH6A EMUs have replaced CRH2As for service. [2]

Future developmentEdit

The extension project is under construction to extend this line from Xinzheng Airport to the proposed new high-speed railway hub Zhengzhou South railway station, which is about 6 km (3.7 mi) to the east of Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport.
