Changi Airport's passenger traffic rises 10% year on year in January
PASSENGER traffic picked up at Changi Airport in January as the airport handled 4.86 million passengers, up 10 per cent year on year.
Aircraft take-offs and landings were also higher, rising 4.7 per cent to 30,150 movements, while cargo shipments improved 4 per cent to 158,000 tonnes.
"Passenger traffic growth was boosted by air travel demand to North East Asia and South East Asia, which account for two-thirds of Changi Airport's total traffic," said airport operator Changi Airport Group. "During the month, traffic to and from all of Changi Airport's top 10 country markets increased, with six markets - China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam - recording double-digit growth. Indonesia traffic rose 7.3 per cent, the first increase since July 2015."
