NCR's second airport to come up in Jewar

NCR's second airport to come up in Jewar

In 2012, the UPA government had also stated that an airport in Jewar would hamper the business interests of the IGI Airport."We are extremely pleased with the approval for an worldwide airport".

Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati Raju on Saturday said, "We have granted approval for the Greenfield International Airport at Jewar, Greater Noida, to cater to growing flying requirements of NCR". The minister of state also said, "With a Rs 15 thousand crores of investment, Noida will turn into a aerotropolis, UP officials have confirmed us to extend the Greater Noida metro upto Jewar to provide a multi modal transport facility in the airport area".

The announcement of a second airport in the national capital region comes at a time when the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi grapples with an ever- increasing number of passengers.

However, the airport is likely to reach that figure in the next seven years, necessitating a second airport in the vicinity of the national capital, according to the government.

The Noida International Airport in Uttar Pradesh will be located 72 km from IGIA and 65 km from Hindon Air Force station in Ghaziabad.

All important towns in Western UP will benefit from this airport, says Jayant Sinha.

There will be one runway in the first phase.

The state government will implement the project through the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA). In June 2016, DMRC had told YEIDA that it was too early to prepare a Techno Economical Feasibility Report (TEFR) for the proposed corridor and suggested it be done after five years.

The clearance for the long-pending airport project was given by the Ministry of Civil Aviation's Steering Committee, which met on Friday.

The airport project was first conceived during the regime of Rajnath Singh as chief minister in 2001 and given shape in 2002 by the next CM Mayawati.

In April, Sinha had said that the new state government in Uttar Pradesh has asked for a fresh technical evaluation for setting up a green field airport at Jewar.

India's government plans to open 50 disused airports by 2020, and has given approval for 18 greenfield airports. Contracts for this public-private partnership project will be awarded after competitive bidding, the statement said. In the case of the Navi Mumbai airport, the GVK-led Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), which won the bid to run the airport, also had a RoFR due to an existing airport at Mumbai.
