The first phase of the airport will spread over 1,334 hectare and is expected to be completed by 2023, according to officials.

The airport, the second in the National Capital Region (NCR) after Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport, will be spread over 5,000 hectare and cost an estimated Rs 15,754 crore, they said.

When fully operational, it is touted to have six to eight runways, the maximum for any airport in the country, they added.

The work on the ground for the airport is expected to start by early 2020.
