Changi Airport’s operating indicators for Q3 2023 

Singapore Changi Airport’s Airfreight throughput stood at 154,000 tonnes for the month, on par with what was carried in the same month last year.

From July to September 2023, airfreight throughput totalled 451,000 tonnes, a decline of 4% compared to the same period last year. The softening in air cargo demand has gradually eased during the quarter, led by improvements in transhipment volumes.

For the period, Changi’s top five air cargo markets1 comprised Australia, China, Hong Kong, India and the United States of America. Notably, air cargo traffic with India registered a strong growth of 21% compared to the corresponding period last year.

Mr. Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group’s Executive Vice President for Air Hub and Cargo Development said, “Passenger traffic at Changi Airport continues to recover steadily across our key markets.

“In particular, traffic to and from China saw a surge in August, with half a million travellers handled that month, more than seven times the traffic in January 2023 when China’s borders first reopened.

“As we move towards 2024, we will continue to work with airlines to reinstate more city links and strengthen capacity on existing routes, to further strengthen Changi Airport’s connectivity to the rest of the world.”
