Singapore Changi Airport Singapore Changi Airport handled record high passengers during the year of 2015, according to the statistics released by the Changi Airport Group (CAG) on Wednesday. The airport handled a record 55.4 million passengers and 346,330 landings and take-offs which represented an increase of 2.5 percent and 1.4 percent respectively.
Changi Airport’s daily record was broken on December 19 with more than 192,000 passengers passing through during the 24 hours. In December, Changi Airport registered a total of 5.29 million passenger movements, the highest ever traffic the airport has achieved in a month since it opened in 1981.
Thailand, Vietnam and Chinese mainland registered the strongest growth in traffic for Changi Airport. This was offset by a softer showing for Indonesia and China’s Hong Kong.
“Going forward, economic uncertainty in many markets, made worse by lacklustre business and consumer confidence, may dampen travel demand in the near term.
However, low fuel prices should support airlines’ profitability. The outlook for Changi is also bolstered by positive developments such as the addition of new city links and airlines in the coming months,” said Changi Airport Group CEO Lee Seow Hiang.
