Noida International Airport is on track to meet Phase I completion deadlines, with one runway and terminal operational by the end of 2024
The terminal forecourt of Noida International Airport (NIA) will feature stairways like the famous ghats of Varanasi and Haridwar, welcoming and bringing people together.
A courtyard that gives the appearance of a haveli allows fresh air and sunlight into the terminal building. Inspired by the region’s major rivers, a white translucent corrugated roof will give the effect of a flowing river. The passenger terminal will feature intricate decorative grilles inspired by Indian architecture. Noida International Airport will present a grand entry into the state of Uttar Pradesh.

While the NIA campus extends over 1,334 hectares, one floor plate of the passenger terminal covers nearly 34,000 square meters, the equivalent of four soccer fields. There are currently over 2,600 workers deployed at the NIA site, and officials said peak strength is expected to reach 6,000 workers.
Officials said Tuesday that Noida International Airport is on track to meet Phase I completion schedules, with one runway and terminal operational by the end of 2024.
Earthworks, leveling and excavation work has been completed across the project site since Tata Projects Ltd was awarded two Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts last year. The vertical construction progresses and the substructures take shape. Several buildings will be built over the next few months, including the passenger terminal building, office buildings, sewage and water treatment facilities, and substations on the site.
The airport will have a 4,000 m long and 45 m wide runway. The ATC tower will reach a height of 40 m. It will provide air traffic controllers with a 360-degree view of the airport, who can see the airport’s runway, aprons and taxiways.
NIA has published tenders for various aeronautical and non-aeronautical concessions for the airport. Air India SATS (AISATS) was recently selected to develop a Multimodal Cargo Hub (MMCH) at the airport, while Roseate Hotels and Resorts was awarded the concession to develop an airport hotel at Noida International Airport.
The upcoming MMCH, spread over 80 hectares of land, will provide fast, convenient and intermodal connectivity to and from manufacturing centers in the country. The freight and logistics infrastructure and ecosystem will serve a differentiated catchment area and multiple emerging industrial clusters in NCR and Uttar Pradesh, creating a freight gateway for North India.
