Noida airport signs state support agreement with UP govt

Mumbai: Noida International Airport (NIA) and the UP government of UP signed a state support agreement on Monday. The agreement lays down the state government’s support to establish and continuously improve surface access to the airport, establish and expand utilities required to run the airport like water, electricity, waste water, maintain law and order, including monitoring at the airport and grant the necessary clearances to build and operate the airport, said a press statement released by NIA. NIA is envisaged to become India’s first net zero emission airport.

Christoph Schnellmann, Chief Executive Officer, Noida International Airport said, “Surface access to the airport will be critical and we are delighted to see the government’s strong commitment to this aspect with the early development of the Metro extension from Greater Noida to NIA airport terminal, the integration of an airport terminal station for the upcoming Delhi Varanasi High Speed Rail Link, as well as the link highway to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway”.

In early October the Government of Uttar Pradesh signed the concession agreement with Zurich Airport International (ZAIA) to commence the development of the Noida International Airport at Jewar for a period of 40 years. ZAIA received the security clearance from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs to develop the Noida International Airport at Jewar in May 2020, after winning the contract to build and operate Noida International Airport (NIA) in Greater Noida in November 2019.
