The airport is located in Changi, at the eastern end of Singapore, approximately 17.2 kilometers (10.7 mi) northeast from Marina Bay (Singapore’s Downtown Core), on a 13-square-kilometre (5.0 sq mi) site. “It is operated by Changi Airport Group and it is the home base of Singapore Airlines, Singapore Airlines Cargo, SilkAir, Scoot, Jetstar Asia Airways and BOC Aviation”, mentions Wikipedia.

For the 2017 full year figures published by the airport, the airport handled 62,219,573 passengers (a 6.0% increase over the previous year), the most in its 36-year history. This made it the sixth busiest airport by international passenger traffic in the world and the second busiest in Asia.

The airport has won over 557 awards since its opening, including 26 “Best Airport” awards in 2017 alone. Changi Airport’s efforts to mitigate the effects of ageing infrastructure include continual physical upgrades to its existing terminals and building new facilities to maintain its high standards in airport service quality.
