Airports Authority of India (AAI) has approved the masterplan for the Jewar International Airport project, which is to be constructed in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

Construction will commence after receiving the final security clearance from the Bureau of Civil Aviation (BCA), reported The Times of India.

The officials of Noida International Airport Limited (NIAL) said that the masterplan was sent to AAI to ensure that all technical requirements are being fulfilled.

NIAL CEO Arunvir Singh was quoted by The Times of India as saying: “We have now received the approval, as well as some suggestions from AAI. They have reviewed the project masterplan.”

The masterplan covers details and design of the entire site, including terminals, runways, commercial areas, parking spaces, and more.

For the technical assessment of all such particulars for any commercial airport, AAI holds the nodal authority in India.

Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), a subsidiary of Zurich International, is preparing to commence construction in the entire zone comprising 1,334ha for the first phase of the airport.

Moreover, the acquisition procedure for the rehabilitation of displaced families in Jewar Bangar has also been completed.

The district administration will now start the acquisition for the airport’s second phase.

The Government of Uttar Pradesh has approved five runways for the airport, out of which two will become operational in phase one.

During the second phase, construction of the third runway and a Maintenance Repair Overhauling (MRO) centre will take place.

Around 1,365ha of land will be acquired from seven villages for this purpose. The entire airport will be constructed in three phases, covering more than 5,000ha.

Zurich International will develop and run the Noida International Greenfield Airport on a public-private-partnership model.

In a separate development, Kolkata Airport has started building a new air traffic control (ATC) tower and a technical block with improved capacity and upgraded technology.

AAI stated that the construction project will cost around $63m.

In addition, Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in New Delhi and Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Hyderabad have received the ACI World’s (Airports Council International) ‘Voice of Customer’ recognition.

In 2020, both GMR-run airports were actively involved in the act of listening and engaging with the passengers in order to understand their needs during the pandemic.
