As you can see, the airport station appears to be underground:

The front of the trains includes the line number:

Here is a new above-ground station

An American announcer on the radio a couple of weeks ago said 35,000,000 people now live there Might this mean that Chongqing's population's gonna hit, e.g., 50,000,000 sometime soon, because I seem to remember its population pegged at 14,000,000 back in the early 90s?

Yep it's larger than Taiwain. It includes 1259 differend cities and towns. The actual urban area of the city most people go to in Chongqing is Jiefangbei and holds a lot less people than 35 million. I even read somewhere the actual population of Chongqing is already declining.

The problem is what do we consider as Chongqing? The entire municipality can be considered as one of the regions in which China is divided: http://www.asiaonline.com.au/china/c...ap_regions.gif

CQ urban area (central Chongqing + the urban suburbs, about 6.300 square km) reachs "only" 8 milions inhabitants: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s_of_Chongqing

About the airport metro station.
I have been there several times when it was yet under construction and, if I remember well, the station is above ground, in this position: http://g.co/maps/aynvm (you can see also the terrain strips on which the viaduct is built.

Yeah, I guess you're right. The photo was taken at night so it seems the station is underground. It's placed above-ground at the urbanrail.net map (http://urbanrail.net/as/chon/chongqing.htm)

Not only that, but there are escalators leading up and there is a roof over the platform with platform screen doors.

And it is like this at Air Train JFK stations and presumably numerous other above-ground air-rail connections around the world.
