Changi Airport hits 86% passenger recovery due to a Q4 tourism surge

While aircraft movements remained slightly below pre-pandemic levels, airfreight throughput experienced a modest year-on-year decline.

December 2023 marked a peak, with the highest passenger movement and aircraft movement figures of the year, indicating a rebound in travel demand.

North America led the pack in traffic recovery in 2023, exceeding 2019 levels by over 25%, driven by domestic and international demand.

Southeast Asia regains its familiar dominance, while China, Japan, and South Korea ignite the skies with their rapid ascent.

Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group’s Executive Vice President for Air Hub expressed confidence in the airport’s full recovery to pre-pandemic connectivity and traffic levels by 2024.

The airport signed a partnership with TUI Airways and Marella Cruises to bring fly-cruise passengers from the United Kingdom to Singapore, further diversifying its passenger offerings.

As of January 2024, the airport has a network of 93 airlines offering over 6,700 weekly scheduled flights, connecting Singapore to 154 cities in 49 countries and territories, reflecting a significant improvement compared to pre-pandemic levels.
