The Indian conglomerate GVK is ready to invest $500m in developing a new, greenfield international airport in Indonesia, making it the country’s first built with private finance.

GVK will create a joint venture with Indonesian state-owned airport operator Angkasa Pura I later this year to develop the airport in the province of Yogyakarta on the island of Java, reports Indonesia Investments.

How Covid-19 brought iShopChangi out of the airport

iShopChangi’s pivot to the non-traveller market also saw the evolution and expansion of its range of products.

Tax and duty-free items such as wines and spirits are perennial favourites among travelling shoppers. With iShopChangi now offering non-travellers these products at over 40% off regular prices all year round, this product category has been a hit among local consumers. In addition, with Covid-19 restrictions on F&B operational hours, more people have been enjoying liquor from the comfort of home. iShopChangi has since seen a seven-fold growth in alcohol sales.
