The airline registered a strong 25% year-on-year growth in passenger carriage on its Singapore routes in 2015, largely spurred by an increased passenger capacity due to aircraft upgrade, as well as an expansion of routes in the last two years, the release added.

In 2015, 3.4 million passengers travelled between India and Singapore. Linked to 13 cities in India through 404 flights on a weekly basis, Changi Airport is the most connected Southeast Asian airport to India, and a gateway to the rest of Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
