The reason for relocating Adisutjipto Airport to the NYIA is very urgent in that the former cannot accommodate the demands anymore. The presence of NYIA, in addition to accommodating transportational needs of Java, also serves as a catalyst for the low economic growth in the region. Currently, there are overlapping uses of air space at Adisutjipto Airport. The objective of the research is to analyze the policy implementations of NYIA development. The research employs a descriptive method and qualitative approach. The results show that the impacts of NYIA development include the switch of land use from agriculture to become an airport, the emergence of social (horizontal) conflicts between people of opposing views, and the emergence of vertical conflict between Kulon Progo District against residents opposing the development. The new airport will increase local revenue of Kulon Progo District, development of investments, trades, tourism, employments, services etc.
