Union Minister Jayant Sinha on Thursday said the new state government in Uttar Pradesh has asked for a fresh technical evaluation for setting up a green field airport at Jewar, located in Gautam Budh Nagar district, adjoining national capital city Delhi.
The minister pointed out that there was a need to consider development of a green field airport at Jewar, since the IGI airport located here will be utilising its full passenger handling capacity in another 4-8 years time.
Earlier, a technical evaluation of the proposed site at Jewar was conducted, but due to the time lapse there was a need to conduct a fresh study, Sinha said.
