Changi International Airport

Changi International Airport announced that it served 58.9 million passengers in 2023.

This number corresponds to 86% of the volume in 2019, with significant increases in travel to and from China. The top five passenger markets were Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Thailand, and India, with China, Japan, and South Korea rapidly recovering compared to the previous year. Notably, traffic from Japan was three times that of the prior year.

The total number of flights was 328,000, a decrease from the previous year by 54,000. A strong recovery in the fourth quarter helped, with the busiest day being December 22, the Friday before Christmas, when 203,000 passengers were served. Cargo volume was at 1.74 million tons, which is a 6% decrease from the previous year, attributable to global economic instability.

In 2023, Macau Airlines, Firefly, and TransNusa launched operations, adding Bhubaneswar and Sanya to the network. There are plans to welcome fly-cruise passengers from the UK from winter to spring over the next three years until 2026. Air Canada is scheduled to resume operations in 2024.
