State government approves new name, logo and design of Jewar International Airport

Noida, India (Urban Transport News): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today approved the design, name and new logo of the international airport to be constructed in Jewar. The proposed airport is expected to be built in an area of around 1,334 hectares at a cost of Rs 29,650 crore in Greater Noida.

The decision was taken in a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath which was attended by all stakeholders, including officials of the Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), the special purpose vehicle of Zurich airport International AG; Arun Vir Singh, CEO of Noida International Airport Limited (NIAL), and other senior officers.
Talking about the new development, Arun Vir Singh, CEO of Noida International Airport Limited (NIAL) said:
The first look of the design has been approved. Saras (stork), the state bird, has been chosen as the logo and the name of the airport will be Noida International Greenfield Airport.

"This airport will become the pride of India and will be one of the best in the world. We will present it as a global brand," said Chief Minister. He said the Jewar airport will lead to the development of industrial infrastructure that will increase employment opportunities, encourage manufacturing and exports.

The land for the project has already been acquired by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) in Noida.

Last week, Swiss developer Zurich Airport International had selected a consortium consisting of Nordic, Grimshaw, Haptic and STUP as the architects to design the passenger terminal of Delhi Noida International Airport (DNIA) at Jewar through a three-phase design competition between June and August 2020.

The winner was selected from three shortlisted teams with demonstrated experience in airport design - Gensler/Arup; Nordic, Grimshaw, Haptic and STUP; SOM /Mott McDonalds. The design competition was conducted under exceptional circumstances this year, and the architects prepared and presented their designs collaborating and communicating remotely.

Christoph Schnellmann, Chief Executive Officer, Yamuna International Airport Private Limited, said:

We are pleased to partner with Nordic, Grimshaw, Haptic and STUP to design this long-envisioned strategic project at Jewar. The team created the winning design with an efficient layout, convincing design language, multiple high-quality areas, spaced out with lush greenery with a balanced concept for both energy savings and a tangible sense of sustainability.

The design of the airport will encompass parameters such as short and efficient passenger flows, digital services, and commitment to minimal environmental impact.

Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL),  a 100 percent subsidiary of Zurich Airport International, has been incorporated to develop the Noida International Greenfield Airport.

On October 7, the Uttar Pradesh government and Zurich Airport International had signed a concession agreement to commence the construction of the airport at an estimated cost of Rs 29,560 crore.

Earlier this month, the Zurich Airport International team has submitted the master plan for the first phase of construction to the Uttar Pradesh government. Zurich Airport International currently holds 100 percent shareholding in the Jewar airport project, which is around 70 km from the main Delhi region.

Zurich Airport International had outbid Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), Adani Enterprises and Anchorage Infrastructure Investments Holdings Ltd to win the 40-year concession for the Noida airport on November 29 last year.

Once fully constructed, the airport will be the second international airport serving the National Capital Region of Delhi and the fast-developing Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development area between Delhi and Agra.
