Air India now operates 42 weekly flights to Singapore

Air India recorded growth of 25% in passenger traffic to Singapore in 2015, the Financial Express reports.

This makes the national carrier the top airline in terms of absolute growth in passenger carriage between Singapore and South Asia – an achievement recognised at the Changi Airport 2016 Awards ceremony.

Air India increased capacity on its Singapore routes last year, and now operates 42 weekly flights to the Southeast Asian country, including daily services from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.

The growth in Air India’s passenger traffic far exceeded the overall increase in passenger traffic at Changi Airport last year, which increased 2.6% to 55.4 million passengers.

Indian nationals now account for 6.1% of Changi’s total traffic, with 3.4m Indian travellers passing through the airport in 2015. Singapore is now connected to 13 Indian cities with 404 weekly flights.

And traffic between India and Singapore is set to grow this year, with Singapore Airlines and SilkAir having recently increased frequencies to India and Scoot planning to launch its first three Indian destinations in the coming months.
