Changi Airport Group’s (CAG) flagship Changi Airport (SIN) in Singapore celebrated crossing the 65 million passengers mark at the end of 2018. The new record was a 5.5% or 3.4 million growth in passenger numbers compared to 2017, which was all the more commendable given the runway utilisation of its two current runways. Impressively, air traffic movements grew by 3.4% over 2017 to 386,000 whilst average passenger loads grew by a more modest 2.0% over 2017 to 170 passengers per aircraft movement.
