Changi Airport June passenger traffic: Highest in 2014, but down from a year ago

SINGAPORE: A total of 4.65 million passengers passed through Changi Airport in June, the highest number this year but a drop of 0.3 per cent when compared with a year ago, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said on Wednesday (July 23).

This is the third monthly on-year decline this year, according to figures provided by CAG.

Aircraft movements for the month dipped 0.5 per cent to 28,130. On the cargo front, 154,700 tonnes of airfreight were processed last month, 0.2 per cent lesser than a year before.

In the first half of this year, 26.61 million passengers travelled through Changi Airport, 1.4 per cent more than the corresponding period in 2013. During the same six-month period, flight movements increased 2.9 per cent to 171,680 while cargo shipments totalled 910,100 tonnes, a growth of 0.6 per cent on-year.

Travel demand within the Asia-Pacific region spurred traffic growth for the half-year, with traffic to North-east Asia and South Asia growing 5.1 per cent and 4.1 per cent, respectively. This was offset by weaker demand for travel to Thailand, which declined 18 per cent for the half-year.

Jakarta continued to top the list of Changi Airport’s busiest routes, followed by Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila. Denpasar-Bali registered a strong 31 per cent increase in the first six months of 2014 compared to a year ago, the fastest growing among the top 10 routes.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
