New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of Noida International Airport (NIA) at Jewar, Gautam Buddh Nagar at 1 pm on November 25. Giving information about this, the Civil Aviation Secretary said that 1334 hectares of land has been acquired for the construction of Jewar Airport. It is a greenfield project which will be implemented in four phases. The construction of the first phase will be done in 36 months, the operational period of the first phase will be 2023-27. The airport is being developed to enhance connectivity and create a future-ready aviation sector. Several new international airports are under development in Uttar Pradesh, including the recently inaugurated Kushinagar airport and the construction of an international airport at Ayodhya is underway.

The airport being built in Noida will be the second international airport in the Delhi-NCR region and will reduce the pressure of passengers at Indira Gandhi International Airport. From a strategic point of view, the Noida International Airport will be of distinct importance and will cater to the needs of people from Delhi, Noida and Ghaziabad besides Aligarh, Agra, Faridabad and neighboring regions. This airport will become the “gateway to logistics” for northern India. Owing to its vast scale and capacity, this airport will also change the landscape of Uttar Pradesh and highlight the potential of the state to the world and help the state to be placed on the global logistics map.

A “Ground Transportation Centre” will be developed at the airport, which will have a multi-modal transit centre, stations for metro and high-speed railways, taxi, bus service and private vehicle parking. The PMO said, “In this way this airport will be able to be directly connected by road, rail and metro. Noida and Delhi will be connected through seamless Metro service. All the nearby major roads and highways, such as Yamuna Expressway, Western Peripheral Expressway, Eastern Peripheral Expressway, Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and others will also be connected to the airport. There is also a plan to connect with speed rail, after which the journey between Delhi and the airport will be just 21 minutes.
