Operating indicators for January 2013
 

SINGAPORE, 20 February 2013 – Singapore Changi Airport handled 4.33 million passenger movements in January 2013, an increase of 1.9% compared to a year ago.

Air traffic movements for the month grew in tandem by 2.2% to 28,200 flights. The Lunar New Year holidays in January last year meant that there was a higher traffic base which affected the magnitude of growth last month.

Among Changi Airport’s top 10 country markets, growth in air travel demand was strongest for Australia, Japan and Thailand, with traffic to and from Sydney, Tokyo and Bangkok increasing by 10% or more.

Airfreight movements registered an increase of 2.5% on-year, as air shipments picked up ahead of the Lunar New Year period. A total of 140,300 tonnes of cargo passed through Changi Airport during the month.

As at 1 February 2013, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to 240 cities in some 60 countries and territories worldwide. With more than 6,400 weekly scheduled flights, an aircraft takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 100 seconds.

By David Swartzentruber
