Noida International Airport will be UP's ninth airport and its fifth international airport - the most in any state.
The new airport will be about 72 km from Delhi's Indira Gandhi Airport, which is the only other international airport in the National Capital Region. It will be about 40 km from Noida and roughly the same distance from a planned multi-modal logistics hub at Dadri.
The Jewar airport will be spread over 1,300 hectares and built over four phases, with work on the first scheduled to be completed by 2024. The estimated cost for the first phase is Rs 10,500 crore, the centre has said.
