Changi Airport named Asia's best for cargo for 28th year

The accolade comes from the Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards.

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport has been named the Best Airport in Asia for the 28th consecutive year by the Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards (AFSCA). The results were determined through voting by readers of freight and logistics publication Cargonews Asia.

Said Mr James Fong, Changi Airport Group’s (CAG) Assistant Vice President for Cargo and Logistics Development: “We appreciate the recognition we have received over the years and remain strongly committed to working closely with the cargo and logistics community to ensure Changi Airport remains a strong and high-quality airfreight hub.”

Changi Airport handled 598,000 tonnes of airfreight movements in the first four months this year, a 0.1 per cent on-year growth.

As part of measures to sustain the long-term growth of the air cargo sector, CAG extended its cargo incentive scheme earlier this year. The scheme comprises a 50 per cent landing fee rebate for all scheduled freighter flights and up to 20 per cent rental rebates for cargo tenants leasing CAG cargo facilities at the Changi Airfreight Centre. More recently, CAG also announced the Growth and Assistance Incentive (GAIN) programme, which offers a 50 per cent parking rebate for all scheduled services from July 1 this year to next June.
