Image Of South Korea Airport Shared As Design Of Noida Airport

BOOM found that the photograph shows design of Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea.

An image of Terminal 2 of South Korea's Incheon International Airport was misleadingly shared by several media outlets and BJP handles as the proposed image of the Noida International Airport. The image was also part of a video tweeted out by verified handles as an aerial view of the airport Jewar, Uttar Pradesh.

The video shows a montage of cutaways of various scenes from airports, along with testimonials from Noida residents praising the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for their work. The image appears at the 17 second mark. The same contains another image, which is actually a rendition of Beijing Airport's latest terminal by architect Zaha Hadid. BOOM has fact checked the same on November 26. Read BOOM's debunk here.
