Singapore Changi Airport handled 4.84 million passenger movements in June, a 3.0% year-on-year increase. Aircraft movements were 2.9% higher at 29,350 landings and takeoffs, while cargo shipments rose 7.8% to reach 163,070 tonnes, compared to the same period last year.
In June, the main regions driving growth were the Americas, North East Asia and South West Pacific. Among Changi’s top ten country markets, China (+16%) and Australia (+7%) led the gainers, with Guangzhou, Melbourne and Perth registering double-digit increases.
For the first half of 2016, 28.8 million passengers passed through Changi Airport, 8.0% higher than the corresponding period last year. Growth was broad-based – all of Changi’s top ten country markets achieved positive growth – with double-digit increases recorded for China, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Aircraft movements rose 4.7% to 177,810, while airfreight movements improved 4.2% to reach 950,250 tonnes for the six months.
Changi Airport received the “Best Green Airport” award at the 2016 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards last month. This is the second consecutive year Changi has won this award.
As at 1 July 2016, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to some 330 cities in about 80 countries and territories worldwide. With more than 6,800 weekly scheduled flights, an aircraft takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 90 seconds.
