Singapore Changi posts cargo tonnage fall in March and Q1

Singapore Changi Airport saw cargo tonnage dip by 1.5 per cent in March as it handled 185,000 tonnes in the month.

For the first quarter of the 2019, tonnage at the Asian hub declined by 3.8 per cent to 493,000 tonnes.

The airport said this was due to a slowdown in global trade flows, and that all cargo flows – exports, imports and transhipments – have weakened.

In March, Singapore Airlines increased its Johannesburg belly services from daily to 10 per week, while Lufthansa increased its Munich belly service from five times weekly to six times.
