PM Modi to lay foundation stone of Noida International Airport in Uttar Pradesh tomorrow

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of Noida International Airport in Jewar Uttar Pradesh tomorrow. The development of the airport is in line with the vision of the Prime Minister towards boosting connectivity and creating a future-ready aviation sector. A special focus of this grand vision has been on the State of Uttar Pradesh that is witnessing the development of multiple  international airports including the recently inaugurated Kushinagar airport and the under construction international airport at Ayodhya. Uttar Pradesh is poised to become the only state in India to have five international airports.

Jewar airport will be the second international airport to come up in Delhi NCR. It will help decongest the Indira Gandhi International Airport. It is strategically located and will serve the people of cities including Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Aligarh, Agra, Faridabad and neighbouring areas. Due to its scale and capacity, the airport will be a gamechanger for Uttar Pradesh. It will unleash the potential of Uttar Pradesh to the world and help establish the state on the global logistics map. 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. The dedicated cargo terminal will have a capacity of 20 lakh metric tonnes, which will be expanded to 80 lakh metric tonnes.
