(Nov 4): The operator of Singapore’s airport rejected claims that a vast new entertainment complex with shops, an indoor waterfall and forest walk was ripped off from Qatar, the Straits Times reported.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker, speaking at the unveiling of expansion plans for Hamad International Airport in Doha last month, said its designs had been copied by another country, according to the Straits Times.

Jewel Changi Airport, which includes the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40 metres, opened in April.
