PERU. Jorge Chavez International Airport has unveiled 17 outlet openings in the second phase of its commercial expansion, with its investment now standing at US$61 million.
Some 13 of the businesses are new while the remaining four were either expanded or renovated. This brings the airport’s offer to 63 shops supported by a restaurant offer from 34 concessionaires, Lima Airport Partners reported.
This new offer places the Jorge Chavez International Airport shopping area among the most competitive in the region, the airport company added. Among the new stores are Fashion, a multi-brand clothing store, and the new affiliates of Ilaria (silver jewellery), H.Stern and acclaimed destination merchandise concept Café Britt.
The diverse offer ranges from jewellery, silverwork, handcrafts, fragrance and liquor, including the traditional Peruvian pisco.
