Gautam Buddh Nagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday laid the foundation stone of the Noida International Airport, near Jewar in Uttar Pradesh's Gautam Buddh Nagar district.
This airport will be the second international airport to come up in Delhi NCR. It will help decongest the IGI Airport. It is strategically located and will serve the people of cities including Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Aligarh, Agra, Faridabad and neighbouring areas.
After laying foundation stone of Noida International Airport, said, "Noida International Airport will be the largest centre of repair, maintenance, and operation of aircraft. A facility for maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft will be built in the area of 40 acres here, which will provide employment to hundreds of youths".
"For us, infrastructure is a matter of national building, not politics. Our endeavour is to complete infrastructure project within the stipulated time period."
"Noida International Airport will directly connect a major centre of export with international markets. It will enable farmers of this region to export perishable goods like vegetables, fruits, and fish. It will help MSMEs of western UP to reach foreign markets".
With this airport, Uttar Pradesh is set to become the only state in India to have five international airports.
