The Airports Authority of India (AAI) had proposed the development of the airport to provide better air connectivity in the western parts of the state, which had already been assessed for up-gradation to cater to scheduled operations. Union civil aviation minister Ajit Singh had urged the State government to handover the airstrip and an additional 427 acres to AAI for development. AAI presented a master plan to the state government in April 2012 seeking the transfer of the airstrip and additional land free of cost and free from all encumbrances.
Meerut International Airport
The state had earlier planned to build a new airport of international standard on same location. The state government had issued a notice for appointing a consultant to prepare a comprehensive feasibility project report, a bid document and the concession agreement for the proposed airport. The project would be implemented through public-private partnership on a design, build, finance, operate and transfer basis.
The State Government decided to have an international airport at Meerut based on a study conducted on the area’s traffic density. Following this, the ministry of civil aviation gave its in-principle approval. The need for a second airport on the fringes of the national capital region has been a long standing demand of the Uttar Pradesh government, especially in view of the burgeoning air traffic at Delhi airport. The proposed airport will not only cater to the industrial towns of western Uttar Pradesh but would also be of immense relief to neighbouring Uttarakhand.
