Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, stated on Thursday that the Noida International Airport in Jewar will have its first runway completed by the end of the year. Once finished, the Noida International Airport will rank fourth in the world and be the largest airport in Asia.
Speaking on the future airport, MLA Dhirendra Singh said that it is being built at a fast pace. He further stated that it will help the economy of Greater Noida as well as all of Uttar Pradesh.
At the airport site, construction work is moving forward quickly. The government’s efforts to instil a sense of security and safety have allowed for the development of the airport to proceed without incident. The economy of the entire western UP, as well as Greater Noida, is boosted by this airport.
It Will Be India’s Largest Airport
When all of its extensions are finished, it will have six runways, making it the fourth-biggest airport in the world and the largest airport in Asia. Depending on the availability of land, a proposal was presented in 2019 to add two more runways, bringing the total to eight runways.
It will also be the country’s first airport with net-zero carbon emissions. With eight and seven runways, respectively, Chicago-O’Hare and Dallas/Fort Worth airports are the only bigger ones. The existing airports in Amsterdam, Boston, Denver, and Detroit all have six runways. There are five runways in Atlanta, Houston-Intercontinental, Shanghai-Pudong, and Pearson in Toronto.
The Indira Gandhi International Airport has the most runways of any airport in India as of July 2023, with four. Folks are eagerly waiting for the project to be completed.
