Transhipment sags but Changi is stable

Singapore Changi Airport’s cargo volumes were stable at 1.84m tonnes in 2014 compared with 2013, although passengers hit a record 54.1m.
Flight movements dipped 0.7 per cent to 341,390 for the year. In December 2014, the airport handled 158,600 tonnes of cargo (+1.4 per cent).
Total cargo throughput for 2014 was up just 0.3 per cent compared to a year ago, as higher imports and exports offset lower transhipment volumes.
Shipments between Singapore and Japan rose 7.5 per cent year-on-year, boosted by ANA Cargo’s new Okinawa-Singapore freighter service. Australia and China also showed positive growth of 5.7 per cent and 1.3 per cent respectively.
During the year, Changi Airport’s SATS Coolport received the world’s first ‘Centre of Excellence in Pharmaceutical Handling’ certification from IATA.
