Jewar airport Noida On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the cornerstone for the Noida International Airport (NIA) in Jewar, Gautam Buddha Nagar. As a result, Uttar Pradesh will become India’s only state with five international airports.
According to officials, the new airport, which is about 72 kilometers from the IGI airport in New Delhi, will be India’s largest once it is completed. The first phase of the airport’s development is expected to cost more than Rs 10,050 crore.
This airport is being built just weeks after the prime minister opened the Kushinagar international airport in Uttar Pradesh to boost the country’s aviation industry. In Ayodhya, another international airport is currently being built.
PM Modi will lay the foundation stone for the new airport on Thursday at 1 p.m.
The airport, which will cover more than 1,300 hectares of land, will be Delhi-second NCR’s international airport.
The first phase of the airport is expected to be completed by 2024, with a capacity of 1.2 million passengers per year. Depending on passenger growth and traffic, the airport will expand to serve 70 million passengers by the end of phase 4.
It will also be India’s first carbon-free airport. Officials claim that land has been set aside for the development of a forest park using trees from the project site.
The airport is “set to be Northern India’s logistics gateway and will help establish UP on the global logistics map,” according to the PMO.
The airport will be connected to all major roads and highways, including the Yamuna Expressway, Western Peripheral Expressway, Eastern Peripheral Expressway, Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, and others.
The state, according to the CM, is working on airports in places where people could not have “imagined” them before. He claims that the airport will create 1 lakh jobs and that many other projects in the area, such as Film City and Electronic Park, are in the works.
