Singapore's Changi Airport handled 4.6 million passengers in January -- an increase of 6.3 per cent compared to a year ago.

SINGAPORE: Singapore's Changi Airport handled 4.6 million passengers last month -- an increase of 6.3 per cent compared to January last year, said Changi Airport Group (CAG).

There was a total of 30,400 landings and take-offs recorded during January, a 7.6 per cent growth compared to a year ago.

CAG said the growth in passenger traffic was supported by an increase in air travel between Singapore and Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, Southwest Pacific and the Middle East.

Travel to and from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam registered double-digit growth.

But travel to Thailand dropped by a quarter.

Changi Airport also processed 151,400 tonnes of cargo last month, a 3.8 per cent increase year-on-year.
