Passenger numbers at Singapore Changi hit 3.39 million in February, jumping 9.1% compared with a year ago.

The boost in passenger traffic was due to the Lunar New Year holiday, the airport said, which saw traffic to Southeast and Northeast Asia increase by double digits.

The airport handled 22,000 flights over the month, which was an increase of 12.2% compared with 2010, and of which 6,200 (28%) were flown by low cost carriers (LCCs).

However, the amount of cargo at the Singaporean airport declined in February by 1.9% compared with a year ago, to just 128,048 tonnes.

Despite this, over the first two months of the year Changi has handled 275,272 tonnes of cargo – an increase of 1.3% from 2010 – with shipments to and from Europe and the Americas contributing to the growth in airfreight movement.
