Singapore's Changi Airport handled 4.28 million passengers in August, an increase of 10.9 percent from a year earlier, while air traffic movement for the month grew 6.5 percent to 27,400 flights on the back of strong travel demand.
Southeast Asia, South Asia, Southwest Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas registered double-digit growth, the Changi Airport Group said in a statement. But cargo movement fell 4.4 percent to 146,400 tonnes in August from a year earlier.
More than 100 airlines operate out of Changi, one of Asia's busiest airports. Passenger movement was 33.6 million at Changi in the first eight months of the year, up 10.5 percent from a year earlier.
The city-state's airport is a base for many carriers, including Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Tiger Airways. SIA's stock has gained nearly six percent so far this year, while Tiger has risen 17 percent.
