China and India boost Changi airport’s passenger traffic

Indian and Chinese nationals helped boost passenger traffic at Changi airport last month, and a total of 5 million travellers passed through its gates during that month.

The airport said in a statement last month’s figures were an increase of 4.6% compared to the same period last year, bringing total passenger traffic at the airport to 25.21 million so far this year, TODAY reported.

Traffic from South Asia saw a 17% growth, with India leading the tally, charting a 21% year-on-year growth, as passengers to and from Mumbai and Chennai rose by more than 20%.

China was the other major market. It registered double-digit growth -- 11% -- accounting for more than half a million passengers last month, or about one in every 10 passengers who passed through Changi.
