Noida International Airport, which is currently under construction, will reportedly have many upscale facilities. These include a shopping mall, 220-room luxury hotel with world-class facilities and availability of various forms of transportation, including a metro line.
An area of about 60 acres has been designated for commercial development and the hotel and the mall will also be constructed on this land. ‘Roseate Hotels and Resorts’ has been selected as the developer for the airport, who got the contract in a competitive bidding process. This hotel will feature new intelligent technology like smartphone access and services especially designed to cater to the modern demands and requirements of global leisure and business travellers.
According to media reports, work is underway to construct the runway and control tower, while the planned inaugural flight is set for September 2024. The UP government, Noida Authority, Greater Noida Authority and the Yamuna Expressway Authority are working together to build the airport, which is being developed next to the Yamuna Expressway.
India is taking assistance from Switzerland to build this world-class airport in Noida. Yamuna International Private Limited, a fully owned company of Zurich airport, is building the facility. India’s ambassador to Switzerland has remarked that this would be the second airport to be developed by the company will develop. Before this project, they had developed the Bengaluru airport.
The Noida airport will be a gamechanger for Uttar Pradesh because of its size and capacity. It will help place UP on the global logistics map by unleashing the state’s potential to the rest of the world. It will be for the first time in the country that an airport will be designed with an integrated multi-modal cargo hub, with the goal of lowering total logistics costs and time. The airport will also play a critical role in assisting the region in attracting large investments, boosting rapid industrial expansion, and enabling local products to reach national and worldwide markets. This will open up new opportunities for several businesses, as well as providing a large number of job opportunities.
