PM to lay foundation stone for Jewar airport near Noida

On 25 November

The Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the Jewar airport near Noida on 25 November 2021, as per a media report. Officials said that the airport was due to be inaugurated in the month of August but faced delays. Earlier, several formalities of the airport project were delayed as well including important meetings with various stakeholders because of the Covid pandemic. Spread across 5,000 hectares, the Noida International Airport is being developed at an estimated cost of Rs.295.60 billion by Zurich International Airport AG. The bid was won by the Swiss Airport firm in November 2019 following which a concessionaire agreement had been signed with the Uttar Pradesh government. In July 2021, the land lease of the airport was signed for a period of 90 years giving approval for construction. The Noida International Airport in Jewar, Uttar Pradesh, is set to be operational by September 2024. It is said to be a key development project for NCR residents.
