For May 9-16, the airport handled 881 movements, which is an increase of 64.37% compared to the same period last year.

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.
