DMRC proposed the link metro from Knowledge Park-2 to Jewar Airport at the cost of Rs 5,329 crore.
The proposed metro rail line will be 35 km long with six stations and parallel to the Yamuna Expressway.
While 4.1 km of it near the airport will be an underground section, the remaining part will be elevated.
Similarly, Noida Airport station will be an underground station, and the remaining five stations will be elevated.
According to a report by Nav Bharat Times, DMRC estimates that this link metro rail line can be built in 1.5 years.
Also, YEIDA plans to build another link metro rail line between the upcoming Noida airport and the existing IGI airport in Delhi.

This proposed Metro corridor is planned to be implemented in two phases.
