Noida International Airport to see Rs 8,914 cr investment in Phase-I

Phase-I of the Noida International Airport at Jewar, Uttar Pradesh, will entail an investment of Rs 8,914 crore. The initial annual passenger handling capacity will be 12 million. 
 
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of the international airport, which is expected to be operational by September 2024. 
 
The greenfield airport, spread over 1,330 acre of land parcel, will initially have two runways. Zurich Airport International AG (concessionaire) has emerged as the winning bidder for developing the aerodrome. 
 
The capital expenditure for Phase-I of the project will be Rs 4,588 crore. The total cost will be Rs 8,914 crore, including Rs 4,326 crore to be spent by the Uttar Pradesh government towards resettlement and rehabilitation (R&R) and land acquisition. 
 
In Phase-I, the airport will have a handling capacity of 12 million passengers per annum and once all four phases of the project are complete, the total capacity is expected to be 70 million passengers per annum. 
 
The total cost of the airport project is estimated at Rs 29,560 crore. The amount excludes the money to be spend by the Uttar Pradesh government towards R&R and land acquisition. 
 
The airport will be developed by Yamuna International Airport (YIAPL), in which Zurich Airport International AG has 100 percent shareholding. 
 
The concession period for the airport is 40 years and NIAL will have one percent golden share in YIAPL as well as the rights to appoint two directors on the YIAPL Board. 
 
NIAL has been set up as a company for the Noida International Airport. The state government and the New Delhi Okhla Industrial Development Authority (NOIDA) will have 37.5 percent stake each in NIAL. The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority and the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) have 12.5 percent stake each in the company. 
 
The memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the concessionaire and the Union government for reserve services was signed on 22 November 2021. 
 
Moreover, eight new airports are coming up in the state, including at Jewar and Ayodhya and five aerodromes are expected to be ready next at Aligarh, Chitrakoot, Azamgarh, Mordabad and Shravasti in 2022. 
 
In 2023, two more airports are expected at Ayodhya and Muirpur, and Jewar will be operational in 2024. At present, there are nine operational airports in the state. They are at Lucknow, Agra, Gorakhpur, Varanasi, Kanpur, Prayagraj, Hindon, Kushinagar and Bareilly. 
 
The Jewar Airport will be the second international airport to come up in Delhi-NCR and help decongest the Indira Gandhi International Airport in the national capital. 
 
It is strategically located and will serve the people of cities including Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Aligarh, Agra, Faridabad and neighbouring areas. The airport will be the logistics gateway of Northern India and due to its scale and capacity, it will be a game changer for Uttar Pradesh. 
 
For the first time, an airport in India has been conceptualised with an integrated multi-modal cargo hub, with a focus on reducing the total cost and time for logistics. 
 
Noida and Delhi will be connected to the airport through hassle-free Metro service, as well as major nearby roads and highways like the Yamuna Expressway, Western Peripheral Expressway, Eastern Peripheral Expressway, Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and others will be connected to the airport. 
 
The airport will also be linked to the planned Delhi-Varanasi High-Speed Rail, enabling people to complete the journey between Delhi and the airport in only 21 minutes. The airport will also house a state-of-the-art maintenance, repair and overhauling (MRO) service.
