On 05 February, 2024, State Finance Minister Suresh Kumar Khanna announced that the Uttar Pradesh government in its 2024-25 annual budget has allocated Rs 1,150 crore for the construction and land purchase for the upcoming Noida international airport (NIA) in Jewar, Gautam Budh Nagar.

Around Rs 914 crore has been allocated for the under construction regional rapid transit system (RRTS) project. The first phase of the Noida airport in Jewar is under development stage and operations are likely to start by December 2024. On completion, the airport is expected to handle about 71 million passengers per day by 2042-43. With this, the government seeks to boost intracity connectivity as well as air travel.

To connect the airport with the catchment area, the state government has requested National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) to propose a high-speed rail link to the airport. Further, plans are also afoot to link the RRTS in Ghaziabad to the upcoming Noida airport. In this context, a feasibility report has proposed 11 RRTS stations on the 72.2 km link as well as a 15-station local metro module.

RRTS project is under construction to link the three cities of Delhi, Ghaziabad and Meerut via a 82km network, and being built at a cost of Rs 30,274 crore. Nearly 21 of the 25 RRTS stations fall in Uttar Pradesh, eight in Ghaziabad and 13 in Meerut. The Centre has to bear 20 percent of the cost, the UP government 17 percent and Delhi government 3.25 percent, while the rest will be funded by multilateral loans.

The Minister also stated that with the inauguration of Maharishi Valmiki International Airport in Ayodhya, four international airports have become operational in the state and South Asia’s largest international airport is going to open soon in Noida. With this, Uttar Pradesh is likely to become the only state in the country to have five international airports.
