Singapore Changi Airport has experienced a 64% uplift in movement numbers, as per data from RadarBox.com.
For the last couple of weeks, the airport has managed to increase its movement numbers by strong double digits compared to the same period last year.
Without further ado, let’s get into the numbers…
Singapore Changi’s Uplift in Movements…
For May 9-16, the airport handled 881 movements, which is an increase of 64.37% compared to the same period last year.
This figure is still around 110 movements short of pre-pandemic figures but still represents a strong recovery path overall.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from the airport:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|April 11-18||1089 movements||477 movements||871 movements||+82.60%|
|April 18-25||1108 movements||497 movements||876 movements||+76.26%|
|April 25-May 2||1017 movements||504 movements||886 movements||+75.79%|
|May 2-9||992 movements||529 movements||885 movements||+67.30%|
What we can see from the data is that Singapore Changi Airport is most definitely on the right path to recovery.
Yes, they still have some work to do, but new routes are either being reinstated or created month-on-month, which will contribute to the numbers climbing.
Looking ahead to the Summer 2023 season and its peak, it will be interesting to see how much further these numbers will climb.
With Singapore Airlines, its main operator, looking to expand services where possible, this will also add to that potential recovery path as well.
