More passengers passed through Changi Airport in Feb
SINGAPORE: Some 3.4 million passengers passed through Changi Airport in February. Changi Airport Group said the figure represented a 9.1 per cent increase from a year ago. It said passenger traffic was boosted by strong travel demand over the Lunar New Year holiday which this year was spread over a long weekend. Southeast and Northeast Asia continued to be the growth drivers, with traffic to these regions increasing by double digits. The number of flights also rose by 12.2 per cent in the month to 22,000 and 28 per cent of the flights were by low cost carriers. The Lunar New year holidays however contributed to a two per cent decline in cargo handled.
