June was busiest month for Changi Airport

Changi Airport handled 4.65 million passengers in June, the highest number of passengers handled in a month this year. 

But Changi Airport Group, CAG, says the number was 0.3 per cent lower compared to June last year. 

This is in tandem with a 0.5 per cent drop in aircraft movements. 

In the first half of this year, CAG says 26.6 million passengers travelled through the airport, 1.4 per cent more than the corresponding period last year. 

Flight movements increased 2.9 per cent to some 172,000 in the period. 

CAG says travel demand within the Asia Pacific region spurred traffic growth for the half-year. 

Jakarta continued to top the list of Changi Airport's busiest routes, followed by Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila.
