HYDERABAD: The number of travellers from Hyderabad to Singapore more than doubled from 83,000 in 2010 to about 1,69,000 as on September 2014, according to Changi Airport Group, which runs the Changi Airport in Singapore.

Interestingly, Singapore is the second top destination for Indians next only to Dubai and the passenger traffic as on September 2014 between Singapore and India stood at 3.4 million.

India is the seventh largest market for Changi and has 12 city links and operates 380 weekly flights across eight airlines.  “The strong connectivity with South East Asia and South West Pacific has contributed towards Changi being Asia’s leading air hub, with the airport handling 53.7 million passengers in 2014,” said Robin Goh, assistant vice-president, corporate communications, Changi Airport Group.

Meanwhile, Changi Airport is ramping up its capacity from the current 66 million passengers per annum to about 85 million by 2018. The company will be investing $ 985 million towards Terminal-4, which will be ready in 2017.
