Greenfield Airport in Ahmedabad – The proposal for the construction of Phase I of the New Greenfield Airport at Dholera, Gujarat, at an estimated cost of Rs. 1305 crore, to be finished within 48 months, was accepted today by the Cabinet, which is presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 
 
The project is being carried out by Dholera International Airport Company Limited (DIACL), a joint venture company with equity held in a ratio of 51:33:16 by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), the Government of Gujarat (GoG), and the National Industrial Corridor Development and Implementation Trust (NICDIT).

Dholera Airport is planned to grow into a significant cargo hub serving the industrial sector and will receive passenger and cargo traffic from the Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR). This airport will service Ahmedabad and the surrounding area as well as another airport. 
 
The New Greenfield Airport in Dholera is 80 kilometres from the Ahmedabad Airport. The airport is scheduled to open in 2025 and close in 2026, with an initial annual passenger throughput of 3 lakh expected to rise to 23 lakh over a 20-year span. 
 
Additionally, it is anticipated that over the course of 20 years, the annual freight traffic will increase from 20,000 tonnes in 2025–2026 to 2,73,000 tonnes.
