Changi traffic increases in August

Singapore Changi Airport handled 5.9 million passenger movements in August 2019, a 3.8% year-on-year increase. Aircraft movements fell 1.6% to 32,400 landings and takeoffs while airfreight throughput declined 8% to 169,000 tonnes, compared to the same period last year.

For the month of August, while growth was recorded for most regions, South Asia traffic dipped 2%. Northeast Asia traffic recorded a 5% increase in passenger movements, with China (+8%), Japan (+14%) and South Korea (+19%) registering year-on-year growth – the latter benefiting from additional capacity on the Busan route.

Hong Kong traffic declined by 14%. Among Changi’s top 10 city destinations, Bali (Denpasar), Shanghai and Tokyo registered double-digit growth.

As at 1 September, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to some 380 cities in about 100 countries and territories worldwide.
