Proposed Jewar airport attracts four bids

A total of four bidders expressed their interest for developing and managing the proposed Jewar airport in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, on Wednesday when the deadline to submit bids for the project ended.

“We have seen a good response. Four bidders have submitted bids, which is very encouraging since Jewar is a greenfield airport. All the major greenfield airports such as Navi Mumbai, Mopa in Goa and Bhogapuram only received two bids each,” said Shailendra Bhatia, Nodal officer, Noida airport.

Opening of bids on Nov. 6

The technical bids will be opened on November 6, followed by the opening of financial bids on November 29.

The global tender for the Jewar airport was floated on May 30.

Mr. Bhatia added that the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority has achieved its target of acquiring 80% of the total land for airport development, i.e. 1,068 hectares of the total 1,334-hectare land.

4-phase development

To be known as Noida International Airport, it will be developed in four phases between 2020 and 2040 at a cost of ₹30,000 crore.

The first phase will be built by financial year 2023 when the airport will be able to handle 1.2 crore passengers annually.

It will have one runway, parallel taxiway, parking bays for 25 aircraft, an Air Traffic Control building, cargo terminal building, among others.

When fully built by 2040, the airport will have two runways, two terminal buildings, parking bays for 102 aircraft and will be able to handle 7 crore passengers annually.
