When riding Keisei Skyliner train from Narita Airport to Tokyo, it costs the same to go to Nippori vs Ueno.
Before the pandemic, when I purchased Skyliner ticket, the staff never asked me where I am going, and just issued me a ticket for Ueno. A few months ago when I visited Tokyo again, Keisei staff took the time to ask me which station I was going to.
This makes me wonder if I would be allowed to travel to a different station than the one on the ticket.
- If I hold a Skyliner ticket for Nippori, can I alight at Ueno station and leave through the fare gate there?
- How about the other way round: Can I exit Nippori with a Skyliner ticket for Ueno? Does it make a difference if I "exit" Nippori vs going straight to JR fare area via transfer gate?
- Does the same apply to trains bound for Narita Airport (Terminal 1 vs Terminal 2·3)? Can I exit one station using a Skyliner ticket for another?
(I am more interested in the case where the fares are the same in both stations. I know there would be a problem if I hold Aoto ticket but alight at Ueno...)
