Construction of Noida Airport Begins In August 2022

Noida is all set to add another feather to its phenomenal growth story as work on the first phase of the Noida International Airport (NIA) begins in August this year. This phase shall witness the completion of the main terminal building and runway within the strict deadline of 25 months, beginning August 22’ till October 24’.

Tata Project Limited (TPL) has won the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the building and the runway for Noida International Airport, which is poised to receive an average annual footfall of 12 million passengers.

Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), the authority overseeing construction on behalf of the government, intends to complete the main building and runway by the end of the last quarter of 2024. Commercial flights are expected to take off as soon as the first stage of construction is completed.

The agreement signed between the state of Uttar Pradesh and Zurich AG, the agency assigned for delivery of the NIA, specifies the deadline of 29th September 2024 for the successful completion of these two pieces of infrastructure, failing which a stiff penalty of ₹ 10 Lakh per day shall be imposed.

With the completion of Noida International Airport, the NCR region will have two operational international airports. The construction of the terminal building and the around 4000-metre-long-runway is slated to be accompanied by the construction of airside infrastructure, roads, utilities, landside facilities and other ancillary buildings. This entire slate of construction has been awarded to Tata Projects, a group with an impressive legacy in the same field.

The entire construction project for the Noida International Airport is poised to be constructed in four phases over 40 years i.e., by the end of 2061. The final master plan for the NIA comprises two terminal buildings and an equal number of runways, poised to be operational at the beginning of the 2060s.

During this 40-year concession period, the NIA master plan is estimated to accommodate commuter footfall with two runways. Post completion, the airport would accommodate an average annual passenger footfall of up to 12 million with its single runway. By the beginning of the 2060s, Noida International Airport will have two fully-operational parallel runways, poised to witness over 70 million passenger footfall annually.

Spanning 1.02 lakh sqm, the initial terminal building is set to see the light of the day in 2024. The second terminal building, as per the official agreement, would be about three times the size of the initial one. The second runway is expected to accommodate a strip of more than 4000 metres, way bigger than the initial runway strip.

A master-planned ground transportation centre featuring an arterial transit hub, metro and high-speed rail stations along with last-mile connectivity transport like buses and taxis is on the good books of the policymakers. This plan also has dedicated space for private parking. Considerations are still underway in the policy chambers in the state of Uttar Pradesh for connecting the airport to Delhi and Noida. Metro connectivity is certainly on the good cards.

Engineers India Limited (EIL), which oversees and coordinates the airport projects on behalf of the state government, has confirmed the beginning of the construction of a support framework in its monthly report to NIAL.

Noida is widely hailed be India’s hottest hub for infrastructure, connectivity, return-on-investment and infinite opportunities for investment and growth. The beginning of the first phase of NIA construction sets the tone perfectly for that.
