The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), in a recent development, announced that they are planning to develop a world-class Aviation Hub in the nearby areas of the proposed Jewar Airport Project. According to authority officials, the aviation hub will mainly cater to leisure and business travellers from around the world.
The report on this hub was recently prepared and submitted to YEIDA by leading consulting firm Ernst & Young (EY).
Elaborating on the above, Arunveer Singh, CEO, YEIDA, said, “In order to add shine to the economy of the surrounding areas, the authority has decided to develop this hub with proper eco-system. It will sync well with the International Airport. The hub will use clean and green energy.”
Currently, the authority officials are studying the feasibility of the report submitted by EY.
Singh further said that the report was prepared after a brief study of various Aviation Hub present at world’s renowned Airports like Istanbul, Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, Singapore’s Changi Airport, Incheon International Airport (Korea). All these airports are known for providing world-class facility to travellers in their aviation hub. So, the same will be incorporated in this aviation hub too.
“We are also working on the transportation activity. We don’t want travellers to use their own transport to visit this place. Perhaps, we want them to make use of public transport.” Singh added.
The Aviation hub will play host to a plethora of entertainment and leisure facilities which are at present under-consideration like golf course, Leisure Park, musical water fountain, skill development, etc.
Briefing on the same, YEIDA officials said that the authority will also form an internal committee to deeply study the report and once the elections will be over and the model code is lifted the state government will be going to float tender so as to select a developer for the Proposed Greenfield Noida International Airport.
Earlier, the Gautam Buddha Nagar Administration has released compensation of 600 crores for the affected villagers under the project from the villages Ranhera, Parohi, and Banwariwas. As said, the Jewar Airport project will be developed in phases and for this, a total of 1239 hectare of land needed to be acquired from six villages. An ambitious project of the central and state government, the proposed airport is said to be operational by 2023 and will be developer under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.
