Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of the Noida International Airport (NIA) in Jewar on November 25. With this, Uttar Pradesh becomes the only state to operate five international airports.

The establishment of the airport is in respect of the vision of PM Modi to strengthen connectivity and build a future ready aviation sector, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s office. The international airport will be India’s first net-Zero emissions airport.

The establishment of the first phase of the airport is undertaken at an estimated cost of more than Rs 10,050 crore. Covering almost 1300 hectares of land, the completed first phase of the airport will have the strength to serve nearly 1.2 crore passengers a year and the entire work is supposed to complete by 2024. The Airport will be the second international airport in Delhi-NCR which will likely aid in decongesting the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

The statement noted that the airport will be the logistic gateway of northern India owing to its scale and capacity. The airport has been conceptualized with an integrated multi-modal cargo hub, concentrated on minimizing the total cost and time for logistics.

Facilitating the smooth movement of industrial products, the airport will boost rapid industrial growth and allow the reach of local products to national and international markets. The airport will build a Ground Transportation Centre, featuring a multi-modal transportation hub, housing metro and high-speed rail stations, taxi, bus services, and private parking.

The airport is also launching a swing aircraft stand concept, providing flexibility for airlines to run an aircraft for both domestic and international flights from the same contract stand, without repositioning the aircraft.
