New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the ambitious Noida International Airport in Jewar on November 25, according to reports. He will be joined by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Phase 1 of the airport is likely to be ready with one runway by September 2024. It will have the capacity to handle 12 million passengers annually.
The airport is being developed by Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), a special purpose vehicle formed for the Noida International Airport and 100 per cent subsidiary of Swiss company Zurich Airport International AG, in close association with the Uttar Pradesh government and the Central government. YIAPL has said it has completed 18 per cent work on the boundary wall of the airport site.
