UP to Have 5 International Airports

Uttar Pradesh will have the highest number of international airports in the country, the state government said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will perform the foundation ceremony of the Noida International Airport (NIA) at Jewar on 25th November. “The state is on its way to having five international airports. Uttar Pradesh had only two international airports in Lucknow and Varanasi till 2012. The third international airport at Kushinagar started operating after PM Modi inaugurated it on 20th October 2021. The airport in Ayodhya is in progress, and services are expected to begin by next year, the state government added.


The fifth international airport will be near Noida in the National Capital Region (NCR). Uttar Pradesh is trying air connectivity in the country to ensure continuous multi-modal connectivity on land, railways, water and air. The Prime Minister’s Gati Shakti National Master Programme has inspired us to infrastructure development in the state, the statement said. The NIA is built near the town of Jewar in Gautam Buddh Nagar in NCR. Its location is nearly 72 kilometres from the IGI airport in New Delhi and 40 km from Noida, the statement added.
