New cargo airport for India

A NEW international cargo airport is being planned at Jaipur on the Delhi–Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) in India.

The airport will be located in Neemrana on the Jaipur–Delhi highway and will be linked up to a high–speed train service running between Alwar and Delhi.

Sunil Arora, chairman of Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment (RIICO), said that the investment in infrastructure would propel Alwar forward as a major business hub of India.

RIICO and the Japan External Trade Organisation signed a Memorandum of Understanding in July 2006 to help Japanese investors set up industrial establishments in the north-western Indian state of Rajasthan.

The Jaipur aerotropolis includes a 100km2 industrial zone on the DMIC corridor, and more than 20 Japanese firms have already announced their projects along the corridor.
