December 2023 was the busiest month in 2023, where 5.8m passengers were handled in a single month, which represented 91% of pre-COVID traffic.

The busiest routes for Singapore Changi Airport were Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta, Denpasar & Manila.

Mr Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group’s Executive Vice President for Air Hub and Cargo Development said the following on the results:

“2023 was an invigorating year, as we witnessed the resounding resumption of travel across the world, as well as the full reopening of Changi Airport’s Terminal 2.”

“The upswing in travel was fuelled by strong outbound travel demand, as well as growing inbound travel. The growth in passenger traffic was especially strong in Asia, with an acceleration seen in the last quarter.”

“Changi Airport also resumed connections to more than 10 cities this year, including Addis Ababa, Changsha, Ningbo, Kaohsiung, and Okinawa.”

“We have restored almost 90% of our pre-Covid city links to date, with Changi Airport now the 5th busiest airport in the world by seat capacity”.

“We step into 2024 hopeful of making a full recovery back to Changi Airport’s pre-Covid connectivity and traffic levels.”

“As more travellers around the world rekindle their wanderlust, we will continue to work with our airline partners to bring exciting destinations and new travel experiences to travellers.”

All eyes will be on how Singapore Changi Airport’s 2024 will go.
