Passenger traffic and aircraft movements at Singapore’s Changi airport both increased in July 2012.

The number of passengers passing through the airport climbed 4.5% year-on-year to 4.36 million last month, while aircraft take-offs and landings increased 4.6% to 27,100.

Traffic to and from the Middle East, Southwest Pacific and the Americas saw double-digit growth, but passenger growth on routes to and from Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia traffic was weaker, in the low single digits. These two regions account for about 70% of total passenger traffic at Changi.

As of 1 August 2012, 100 airlines operate at Changi airport, operating more than 6,200 weekly scheduled flights – or one every 100 seconds.

Changi handled 25.0m passengers in the first half of 2012, keeping it well on track to exceed last year’s total of 46.5m passengers.
