Changi Airport’s cargo volumes keep rising with 4.4 per cent growth in April to 171,720 tonnes, and reached a record two million tonnes on a 12-month basis.

For the 12-month period ending April 2017, volumes grew seven per cent to over two million tonnes, with growth across all flows – import, export and transhipment, with key segments including aerospace parts, perishables, pharmaceuticals and e-commerce.

Changi became the first airport community in Asia Pacific to establish an end-to-end supply chain that meets International Air Transport Association Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics standards.

VietJet launched daily Hanoi – Changi services on 27 April, with seven carriers connecting Vietnam with flights to Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
