Singapore's Changi Airport has set a new record high of 4,300 weekly scheduled flights since the start of the Northern Winter Season, 100 more than the Northern Summer season.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) Monday said in a statement that the growth was led by increases in flights to South Asia and North Asia, in particular the Indian sub-continent.
"This is not surprising, given that India and China are Singapore's fastest growing markets for business and tourism," said the CAAS.
In addition, for the first eight months of this year, passenger movements between Singapore and these two countries experienced year-on-year growth of 17.5 percent for India and 11.3 percent for China.
According to the CAAS, this Northern Winter season, which started late last month, has seen more flights from Singapore operating to Shanghai, Hangzhou and Fuzhou in China, and also more flights added to three cities in India.
The air cargo industry has also benefited from new cargo flights launched by several players including United Parcel Services, Shanghai Airlines Cargo International and China Eastern Airlines.
There are now 83 airlines connecting Singapore to 189 cities worldwide.
