Traffic at Singapore’s Changi Airport continued to increase in July, driven by demand for routes to and from India.
The Southeast Asian gateway airport handled 5.42 million passengers and 31,910 flights last month, up 4.5% and 3.6% year-on-year respectively.
And while all regions recorded rising passenger traffic in July, passenger traffic on routes to and from India surged 16%, registering double digit growth for the seventh consecutive month this year. Germany, the UAE and USA also achieved double-digit growth during the month.
New services launched in July included additional Singapore Airlines flights to Melbourne and Dhaka. Changi is now served by more than 100 airlines, which connect Singapore to 380 cities in about 90 countries and territories worldwide.
One aircraft takes off or lands at Changi roughly every 90 seconds.
