Changi Airport passenger traffic jumped 10% in January

Travel to all top markets increased.

Singapore’s Changi Airport handled 4.86 million passengers in January, marking 10% year-on-year jump.

Aircraft movements were 4.7% higher with 30,150 landings and takeoffs, while cargo shipments improved 4.0% to 158,000 tonnes, compared to the same period last year.

Changi Airport Group said that passenger traffic growth was mainly boosted by air travel demand to North East Asia and South East Asia, which account for two-thirds of Changi Airport’s total traffic. 

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%, the first increase since July 2015.
