DALLAS, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --?Jacobs (NYSE:J) has been selected by Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), a subsidiary of Zurich Airport International AG, as Program Management Consultant for the upcoming Delhi Noida International Airport (DNIA) project in India.
The first phase of the greenfield development includes the construction of a new terminal complex, runway, taxiways and aircraft parking, air traffic control tower, cargo facilities and ancillary buildings spanning over 3,300 acres (1,334 hectares) on the outskirts of Greater Noida in Jewar. When complete, the airport will be the second in the Delhi National Capital Region and will accommodate up to 12 million passengers per year.
YIAPL expects the first phase of the project to be operational in 2024. An expected second phase of development will include construction of additional terminal and airfield infrastructure, including a second runway to increase capacity to 30 million passengers per year.
"Delhi is already one of the largest metropolitan cities in the world and it's growing quickly," said Jacobs President and Chief Operating Officer Bob Pragada. "The new airport will deliver much needed aviation capacity for the city, helping to boost tourism, create jobs and support economic development in the region. The airport is also expected to improve connectivity to major regional cities in Uttar Pradesh, which is home to some of India's most popular tourist attractions including the Taj Mahal, by providing a new international gateway to the regional cities of Lucknow and Agra. We're excited to be bringing our global aviation and program management expertise, local knowledge, and experience delivering other aviation projects in India to this major greenfield development."
