Speaking on the occasion of the foundation laying stone ceremony of Noida International Airport, the Union Minister said soon there will be 17 airports in Uttar Pradesh.

"Noida International Airport will be a multi-modal connectivity hub and bring in investments worth Rs 60,000 crore to Uttar Pradesh. It will create employment opportunities for more than 1 lakh people. Soon we will see 17 airports including an international airport at Ayodhya in the state," said Scindia.

"I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and congratulate all of you on Jewar airport," he said.

He further said that the Jewar will be connected to Delhi by road, metro and bus.
