Changi Airport

Changi International Airport in Singapore has reported a 12.1% rise in passenger traffic to 4.24 million in January 2012 compared to 3.79 million in January 2011

The rise was reportedly caused by the Lunar New Year holiday.

Changi’s cargo volume dropped during the period by 7.1% to 136,800t compared to same month last year due to a slump in airfreight demand during the Lunar New Year period.

Air traffic movements at the airport achieved a 14.9% rise to 27,600 aircraft movements when compared to the same month in 2011.

Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, South Asia and Middle East routes registered double digit year-on-year growth in passenger traffic during the period.

Among the region’s top five routes were Jakarta, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila, which together contributed about one third of passenger traffic.

For the whole of 2011, Changi Airport reported a 10.7% rise in its passenger traffic to 46.5 million passenger movements when compared to 2010, as well as 302,000 aircraft movements, a 14.5% increase.
