SINGAPORE, July 23 (Xinhua) -- Singapore's Changi Airport handled 4.67 million passenger movements in June, up 6.1 percent compared with the same period last year, the airport said on Tuesday.

Flight movements, including aircraft landings and take-offs, in June also increased 6.1 percent on year to 28,300. During the month, 150,500 tons of cargo were handled at Changi, 1.8 percent less than a year ago.

For the first half of the year, Changi Airport managed 26.2 million passengers, an increase of 5.0 percent on year. Aircraft movements rose in tandem by 4.6 percent to 166,800. Total cargo volume dipped 2.3 percent to 877,700 tons for the first six months.

"Air traffic to and from Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, South Asia and the Middle East grew. The haze situation in Singapore during the month had no discernible impact on passenger and aircraft movements," the airport said.

The airport opened a new city link with flight operations connecting Singapore to Kalibo in the Philippines last month.

As at July 1, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to 250 cities in some 60 countries and territories worldwide.
