Singapore Changi Airport saw its cargo volumes decline 3.2 percent to 1.81 million tonnes in 2012, suppressed by uncertainties in the global economy.

For December 2012, cargo traffic was down 8.2 percent to 152,868 tonnes from 166,607 tonnes year-over-year.

In a statement, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said that global economic uncertainty dampened airfreight volumes at the airport. Shipments to and from China and the United States, Changi’s top cargo markets, declined after positive growth in 2011.

Despite the downward pressure on cargo volumes, niche segments such as perishables, live animals, and pharmaceuticals grew during the year.  Changi also achieved growth in cargo tonnage to and from Africa and the Oceania region.
