Noida Airport Connectivity

Meanwhile, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is reportedly planning to bring down the travel time between Greater Noida to Jewar airport to under 25 minutes by maintaining a speed of 120km an hour, where a major portion of the 32.3 km corridor would be elevated.

The DMRC will also soon start working on three options – Metrolite, Metro Neo and Metro Express — to connect the Noida International Airport with Knowledge Park II in Greater Noida and eventually other parts of NCR, said a Times of India report.

Shailendra Bhatia, a special duty official at the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) said, “At present, the priority is to provide quick connectivity to the Jewar airport from other parts of NCR. Metro connectivity already exists up to Knowledge Park II. Another corridor will have to be constructed to connect the last leg. But so far not more than five to six stations will be planned here.”
