SURAT: It’s respectable now. Navsari district is all set to accommodate the brand new cutting-edge world airport within the subsequent couple of years.

The state executive and Airports Authority of India (AAI) have began scouting for land for the brand new airport in Navsari district. This has been published in information sought under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

In the minutes of the assembly — a copy is of which is with TOI — held under the chairmanship of leader secretary J N Singh and AAI chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra it was once determined that the federal government will establish 3 to four sites within a radius of 40 km from the Surat airport to increase the brand new facility.

Once the sites are finalized, the state executive will position them ahead of AAI for selection of the final location.

The executive is looking for about 2,000 acres of land within 40 km radius of the Surat airport. Ubhrat in Jalalpore district falls throughout the 40km radius and the land confirming the improvement of the airport is already available with the state executive.

The proposed web site is set 35 kilometers away from Surat, however the distance may well be diminished to about 15-20 km by means of developing a bridge over Mindhola river. The web site may be just 15-20km some distance from Navsari and the airport amenities will serve the twin towns.


Many vital projects were deliberate under instructions of Gujarat executive and places of some of these projects are both in air funnel of the Surat airport runway or close to the airport and therefore affected due to restrictions laid down by means of guidelines of AAI.


The projects discussed by means of the district collectorate include the Surat Diamond Bourse (SDB) at Diamond Research and Mercantile (DREAM) City with proposed height of 73 metres and available height as in keeping with AAI at 54 metres, Multi Modal Transportation Hub (MMTH) at Surat railway station with proposed height of 200 metres and height as in keeping with AAI at 100 metres, high-rise multi-storied executive place of work building for Surat Municipal Corporation with 180 metre height and available in line with AAI at 100 metres and so forth.


Sources said that the massive airport in Navsari could be introduced ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The Surat airport will probably be operated to cater to home travel and limited world operations, till the brand new airport is in a position and operational in Navsari.
