India clears plan for $3.1-B second airport for Delhi

Posted June 25, 2017

Singh said that Jewar global airport is strategically located as it's not only in the NCR region, but the dedicated freight corridor from Ludhiana to West Bengal also passes close by the airport.

"We have granted in-principle approval for a greenfield airport at Jewar (Greater Noida) to cater to the growing flying requirements of NCR", Raju said at a press briefing held at the Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan here which is the headquarters of the Ministry of Civil Aviation.

Singh, along with State Civil Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Gupta Nandi, said that the UP Government was trying for the worldwide airport since 2003.

The airport will help reduce congestion at the Delhi worldwide airport. "In Delhi, we are expecting 91 million passengers by 2020 and 109 million passengers by 2024", he was quoted as saying by the agency further. "It will give a boost to tourism, manufacturing, export sector and much more", said Arunvir Singh, chief executive officer, Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority. The area notified for Noida Airport is 3000 ha; 1st phase will be developed for 1000 ha.

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).

"We expect that the first phase of the Airport will be operational in 5 years", Sinha said.

All important towns in Western UP will benefit from this airport, says Jayant Sinha.

Senior minister Raju said that the government will honour the Operation Management and Development Agreement (OMDA) with GMR, which operates the Delhi Airport jointly with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for Delhi airport.

In the meeting, the U.P. government assured that it will provide multi-modal transport connectivity to the new airport by extending metro rail connectivity from Greater Noida to Jewar, Mr. Choubey said. The last UP government scrapped the project, citing a clause that bars development of a second airport within a 150-km radius of an existing one. Later, governments including those of Mayawati, proposed that the project be set up in Jewar, near Greater Noida.

"However, this airport may also (just like Navi Mumbai Airport) have difficulty in generating sufficient bidder interest due to the pre-emption right available to the incumbent developer and in case government does not undertake key pre-development activities prior to putting the project to bid".
