Passenger traffic at Singapore's Changi Airport grew 12.5 percent to 3.82 million in September compared to a year ago, but warned about the possibility of weak travel demand to and from Europe and United States.

Changi, home base of Singapore Airlines, also said in a statement that it handled 154,359 tonnes of freight in September, up 2.2 percent from a year ago.

“The sustainability of this growth may be impacted by weaker travel demand to and from Europe and the United States as a result of increasing economic uncertainty in this region," the airport group said in a statement.
