The Noida International Airport, also known as Jewar Airport, is in its final construction stages and is expected to commence passenger services in October, becoming India’s largest airport. It will be the third airport in the National Capital Region (NCR), after Delhi Airport and Hindon Airbase in Ghaziabad.

To ensure connectivity, the airport will be accessible via six roads, a rapid rail-cum-metro system, and pod taxis. A 31-kilometre greenfield expressway is being built to connect the airport with the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway at Ballabhgarh.

Arun Vir Singh, CEO of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), stated that NHAI is constructing a 750-metre eight-lane road to link the expressway with the airport. Four lanes are expected to open by June 15, with the remaining four becoming operational by August 15.

NHAI has also been awarded three other projects to enhance airport connectivity, including an 8.2-km road towards the north and east of the airport, facilitating access to the airport cargo terminal via the Yamuna Expressway. Plans for a VIP access road and other transport systems are also in progress.

The airport has awarded a concession for retail and duty-free stores to a consortium comprising Heinemann Asia Pacific and BWC Forwarders Private Limited. Heinemann will manage duty-free stores, while BWC Forwarders will oversee domestic and international duty-paid retail. Passengers will have the option to explore Heinemann-branded stores, enhancing their shopping experience.

Moreover, the airport will showcase Uttar Pradesh’s artisanal traditions, featuring locally sourced artefacts, textiles, woodwork, jewellery, and metalwork. The international duty-free outlet will offer premium brands, regional handicrafts, souvenirs, ayurvedic products, packaged food, teas, coffees, and spices.
