Jewar Airport to be India's biggest

The proposed international airport at Jewar, spreading over 5,000 hectare and having four runway strips, is touted to be India's biggest airport. The airport is expected to be operational in the next five to six years and cater to 30-50 million passengers per year over the next 10-15 years.

The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) and the Gautam Budh Nagar district administration are reportedly scheduled to start land acquisition for this ambitious project in July, groundwork for which has already started. The GMR Group, which operates the Delhi IGI Airport, has reportedly been given the right of first refusal for this new project. The Uttar Pradeh Government has expedited the work for this project and the Union Government is also supporting this project with an aim to create investment and employment in this region.

The Union Civil Aviation Ministry has already given clearance for the international airport at Jewar.
