Hindon Airport, also spelled as Hindan Airport is an upcoming civil enclave in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, operated by the Airports Authority of India at Hindan Air Force Station of the Indian Air Force.
The Indian Air Force permitted the Civil Aviation ministry to use the air base for civil operations in August 2017. The Uttar Pradesh government gave its approval for the project in March 2018. The enclave will be built on 7.5 acres at Sikandarpur village in Sahibabad, adjacent the airbase. Service is planned to begin January 2019 and stop around September 2022 as expansions are made to Indira Gandhi International Airport. Starting next February this airport will be the second in Delhi NCR. This airport will be completed by mid February 2019. The new airport will have a capacity of serving 300 passengers an hour. 45.2 crores is being used to build the new civil terminal. Air traffic control will be provided by the Indian Air Force.
Prime Minister inaugurated the passenger terminal built at cost of 40 Crores INR on 08 March 2019 just before model code of conduct. It is not operational yet.
In May 2019, it was reported that the state government and AAI were considering making the airport permanent.
The closest Delhi Metro station is Raj Bagh Metro Station (opposite to Star Cinema on GT Road). One can also get down at Mohan Nagar Metro station and take the Delhi Wazirabad road to reach the airport.
