Changi Airport: Operating Indicators for May 2013

Singapore Changi Airport handled 4.28 million passenger movements in May 2013, a growth of 4.7% compared to the same period in 2012. Flight movements increased by 5.4% to 28,500. During the month, 147,600 tonnes of cargo were handled at Changi, 3.5% less than a year ago.

The growth in passenger traffic was supported by healthy increase in air travel between Singapore and Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and South Asia. Among Changi’s top 10 country markets, passenger movements between Singapore and Japan, Malaysia and Thailand registered double-digit increases. Australia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand ranked among Changi’s top five markets in May 2013.

For the period of January to May 2013, 21.6 million passenger movements were recorded at Changi, 4.8% more than the corresponding period in 2012. Aircraft movements grew in tandem, increasing by 4.3% to 138,600. Airfreight shipments dipped 2.4% to 727,100 tonnes for the same period.

As at 1 June 2013, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to 250 cities in some 60 countries and territories worldwide. With more than 6,600 weekly scheduled flights, an aircraft takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 100 seconds.
