Changi Airport's cargo volume falls 1.8pc

  24.07.2013    

Changi Airport in June handled 150,500 tonnes of air freight, a decrease of 1.8 per cent compared to the same month in 2012 based on the latest figures from the operator of Singapore's Changi Airport Group, according to the Shipping Gazette.
In the first half of 2013, total cargo volume fell 2.3 per cent year on year to 877,700 tonnes.
Passenger traffic in June rose 6.1 per cent with 4.67 million passengers passing through the airport. This marks the highest number of passenger movements in one month at the airport so far this year. In terms of flight movements, a total of 28,300 aircraft landings and take-offs were recorded, up 6.1 per cent year on year.
A statement from airport authorities said the haze in Singapore in June caused by forest fires in Indonesia had no discernable impact on aircraft and passenger movements, with air traffic to and from southeast Asia, northeast Asia, south Asia and the Middle East rising.
For the first six months of the year, the airport managed 26.2 million passengers, an increase of five per cent compared to the same period a year earlier. Aircraft movements rose in tandem by 4.6 per cent to 166,800. The destinations that registered the strongest growth were Yangon in Myanmar, up 27 per cent year on year; Taipei, Taiwan up 19 per cent; and Bangkok, Thailand up 18 per cent.
Other highlights include the commencement on July 18 of a new service connecting Singapore to Kalibo in the Philippines. Tigerair is operating thrice-weekly services to Kalibo, the capital of the province of Aklan, in the northwest of Panay Island, and the nearest international gateway to the tourist hotspot of Boracay Island.
