Noida: The construction of Noida International Airport, also known as Jewar airport, is nearing completion, with passenger services expected to commence in October. The airport, set to become the largest in India upon completion, will be the third in the National Capital Region (NCR), joining Delhi airport and Hindon airbase in Ghaziabad.

Connectivity To Airport

To enhance connectivity, six roads and a rapid rail-cum-metro, along with pod taxis, will link the airport to various destinations. A 31-km greenfield expressway is under construction to connect the airport to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway at Ballabhgarh. Additionally, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) is building a 750-metre eight-lane road to link the expressway with the airport.
According to Arun Vir Singh, CEO of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), four lanes of the road are expected to open by June 15, with the remaining lanes becoming operational by August 15. Furthermore, NHAI has been awarded three other airport connectivity projects.
One of these projects involves constructing an 8.2-km long and 30-metre wide road towards the north and east of the airport, costing Rs 63 crore. This road will connect the airport's cargo terminal with the Yamuna Expressway. Additionally, a VIP access road will be built for VIPs and emergencies to reach the Noida Airport from the Yamuna Expressway.
The Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the Rapid Rail-cum-Metro Rail has been approved and sent to the government for funding recommendation. A study is also underway for the pod taxi and monorail, which may take up to two years to complete.
