SINGAPORE - Changi Airport handled 4.65 million passengers in June, the highest for any month so far this year, but lower than a year ago.
Total passenger traffic dipped 0.3 per cent compared with June last year, Changi Airport Group said on Wednesday.
In the first half of the year, 26.61 million passengers travelled through Changi Airport, 1.4 per cent more than during the same period last year.
Travel demand within the Asia-Pacific spurred traffic growth for the half-year, with traffic to North-east Asia and South Asia growing. This was offset by weaker demand for travel to politically-unstable Thailand.
Jakarta continued to top the list of Changi Airport's busiest routes, followed by Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila.
Between January and June, the number of aircraft take-offs and landings grew year-on-year by 2.9 per cent to 171,680 while cargo shipments totalled 910,100 tonnes, a growth of 0.6 per cent.
