Singapore is strategically located at the heart of the region. Building on Singapore’s strategic geographical location and excellent connectivity to the rest of the world, our air hub has distinguished itself with world-class infrastructure and
a conducive regulatory environment. This allows Singapore to attract and anchor key international players to spur growth of the aviation ecosystem.
Our air hub connects Singapore to more than 170 cities, through more than 125 airlines. Changi Airport is one of the busiest in the world, handling about 68.3 million passenger movements and processing 2.01 million tonnes of cargo pre-COVID-19, in 2019.
Aviation is also a key pillar of the Singapore economy, contributing to about 5% of GDP and about 200,000 jobs. The air hub also supports other economic sectors such as tourism, manufacturing and logistics, and anchors major aerospace companies in Singapore.
