Set for a mega launch on November 25 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Jewar International Airport will benefit the residents of the National Capital Region (NCR) and help in reducing the load at the Indira Gandhi International airport.

The bhoomi pujan for the project will be attended by PM Narendra Modi on November 25.

Once completed, the airport will make travelling easy for residents of East Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Greater Noida, Meerut and nearby west UP districts. Also, with a target of over one crore footfall every year, the airport will give a major boost to tourism in Agra and Mathura.

“The airport will be connected to the Delhi-Mumbai expressway near Ballabhgarh in Haryana. The entire population of Haryana, which lives far from the existing Delhi airport, will get direct air connectivity. This will open new windows for not only west UP but Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan also,” said Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh.

The airport will make travelling easier for a large population which currently lives between NCR and the international airport in Jaipur.

“Since the proposed airport site is already connected via two major expressways — Eastern Peripheral and Yamuna Expressway– it’s very accessible for the entire population living near these expressways,” said Arun Veer Singh, CEO, Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (Yeida).
