Changi's cargo traffic rebounds in February from January's dip

2012 03 23

SINGAPORE's Changi Airport handled 143,900 tonnes of cargo in February 2012, representing an increase of 12.4 per cent compared with the same month last year.

February's result marked a rebound after cargo movements decreased by 7.1 per cent in January year on year, which airport authorities attributed to the Lunar New Year holidays.

A statement said: "Disregarding the impact of the Lunar New Year holidays, air freight movements grew by two per cent year on year during the January-February 2012 period.

Passenger traffic at the airport rose by 11.2 per cent to 3.77 million in February.

The result was driven by strong travel demand across all regions, with traffic between Singapore and the Middle East growing 20 per cent.

Passenger numbers travelling to the Americas, Europe, south Asia and southeast Asia also grew by double digits.

Aircraft landings and take-offs increased by 13.1 per cent in February to 24,900 flights, corresponding with the growth in passenger traffic.
