Aside from Jewar Airport, Noida to also get an aviation hub

New Delhi: Aside from the proposed Jewar airport, Greater Noida is also set to get an aviation hub. According to the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), the project report for this hub has reportedly been submitted already by Ernst and Young. The work on the Jewar airport will start after the Lok Sabha elections.

It may be noted that eight farmers had filed a petition in Allahabad High court seeking to cancel the notification for land acquisition for the airport. In their petition, the farmers wanted the notification to be quashed on the grounds of the administration violating norms. However, the petition was dismissed by the court earlier this year in April. The aviation hub is proposed to be built in the area near the airport.
A ToI report quoted YEIDA CEO Arunveer Singh saying, "The government is developing the Jewar Internation Airport, So, we have decided to develop a city with proper eco-system in the airport's neighbourhood. This will be a kind of aviation hub that will sync with the international airport. This will be based on clean and green energy. We are currently studying the report's findings."

Jewar airport will be the largest airport in India by surface area and the cost of this airport project is estimated to be up to USD 3.1 billion. The airport project will be implemented as a public-private partnership. This proposed aviation hub will be significant since the airport is expected to handle 60 lakh passengers annually when it opens in 2023, the report stated citing officials.
