Changi cargo up 2.8pc

  27.01.2012    

Singapore Changi Airport posted a 2.8 per cent year-on-year increase in air freight in 2011 to 1.87 million tonnes, recovering highs achieved in 2008, according to the Shipping Gazette. 
Changi Airport managed a 10.7 per cent increase in passengers to 46.5 million and a 14.5 per cent of aircraft movements during the year to 302,000.
Some 167,000 tonnes of cargo were handled in December, an increase of 6.9 per cent year on year, representing Changi's busiest month in three years.
"In 2011, Changi's cargo community welcomed the launch of freighter flights to Chengdu and Chongqing, and cargo flights by Emirates and Lufthansa Cargo. Cargolux and Cathay Pacific Cargo also started B747-8F flights to Singapore," said a statement from Changi Airport Group (CAG).
December was Changi Airport's busiest month ever with 4.53 million passenger movements, 11.4 per cent more than a year ago. Changi's daily record was also broken on December 17 with 165,000 passengers passing through in 24 hours, surpassing the previous record of 148,000 passengers on June 19.
There were 27,700 aircraft movements last month, an increase of 16 per cent compared to December 2010. As at January 1, Changi handled more than 6,300 scheduled flights a week, an increase of 16.7 per cent from a year ago.
Despite a significant drop after the March earthquake and tsunami, air travel to Japan recovered in the second half of the year and Tokyo retained its position as one of Changi's busiest routes. For the year, passenger traffic between Singapore and Japan grew two per cent, buoyed by industry efforts to revive demand.
Among sectors with at least half a million passengers, Taipei, Manila, New Delhi, Melbourne and Hong Kong post the strongest growth. Seven new carriers landed in Singapore - Air Macau, Hong Kong Airlines, Finnair, TransAsia Airways, IndiGo and Lao Airlines.
