Centre grants approval for airport at Jewar in Greater Noida

When fully completed in the next 10 to 15 years, the Noida International Airport will have the capacity to handle 30-50 million passengers per year (MPPA).

Thanking the Centre for clearing the airport, Uttar Pradesh Health Minister Sidddharth Nath Singh said that the tha aprt will not only be the cargo hub but will also cater to the need of domestic and worldwide traffic. After Yogi Adityanath took the reins of Uttar Pradesh, he ordered the work on the project to be expedited.

Thanking the central government for the in-principle approval by the Civil Aviation Ministry for the project, the Health Minister said the Uttar Pradesh government had identified 3,000 hectares of land for the proposed airport.

Facing his worst crisis, President Rodrigo Duterte has declared martial law in the south to deal with the Marawi attack. The month-long fighting killed almost 400 individuals, including 26 civilians, 298 terrorists, and 69 government troops.

The government expects the entire project to cost Rs 15,000 crore to Rs 20,000 crore.

The first phase of the project would require around 1,000 hectares of land, the minister said.

The metro service in Noida is also likely to be extended up to Jewar in order to improve connectivity to the airport. "The indifferent approach of the previous SP and BSP regimes in UP and also the indifference of the previous UPA Government at the Centre and the dispute over the project site had delayed the project", said the Minister.

The new aviation facility at Jewar - Noida International Airport - is expected to ease the infrastructure pressure on the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) located here. "The state government is interested in connecting Allahabad, Varanasi, Lucknow and Gorakhpur with Jewar under the UDAN scheme besides boosting major tourist destinations of Mathura, Vrindavan and Agra", he added.

"Within seven years Delhi airport will see 109 million trips a year, which will saturate its capacity". "The agreement of the developer with Union Aviation Ministry said that no new airport would come within 150 km radius of Delhi airport".

Last year, the Civil Aviation Ministry said it had received a proposal from the then state government for grant of site clearance for the proposed airport near Jewar.

The new facility, expected to be spread across 3,000 hectares of land, will be the second worldwide airport to serve the catchment areas of the National Capital Region (NCR). "This should have been done a long time ago but it repeatedly delayed due to the tussle between the Centre and state, besides other administrative reasons", said AN Dhawan, secretary general, Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Association (FONRWA).The state government in 2013 chose to shift the project to Agra, 200km away from the IGI Airport.
