The upcoming Jewar airport in Greater Noida will be by far India’s biggest with six runways and spread over 5,000 hectares. Once completed, it will be counted alongside the likes of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which have annual passenger capacity of 80 million and 60 million, respectively. In the first phase (2022-23), just two runways of the Jewar airport will be made operational. Currently, Delhi’s IGI Airport is Asia’s seventh-busiest with 66 million passengers. Jewar, the second airport in Delhi-NCR, is expected to take significant traffic pressure off IGIA.
Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar Airport in Indore is an international airport that principally serves Indore and adjacent regions in the Indian State of Madhya Pradesh. It is the busiest airport in Central India and is located 8 km west of Indore.
We will be witnessing a historic game-changing phase-shift from the erratic and chaotic Gurgaon to the open-spaced and organised Greater Noida!
Jewar airport has lots of promises PROVIDED connectivity issues with the catchment area are solved. Solved for both passengers and daily commuters. Connectivity is the single agenda that will decide success/failure of Jewar, which is 38km away from the nearest town and 70km from Delhi.
