The last time the passenger number surpassed this mark was in December 2003, when 2.7 million people passed through, started or ended their flights at Changi.The June 2004 figure also represents a 70.4 per cent jump over June 2003, when 1.53 million travellers used Changi Airport.

Compared with June 2002 before SARS struck, the June 2004 number is 6 per cent higher.

In June 2002, Changi received 2.46 million travellers.

The first six months of the year saw 14.4 million travellers using Changi Airport, a 35.5 per cent hike over the corresponding period a year ago, and a 1.7 per cent increase over the same period in 2002.Air cargo volume retained its steady climb.

Asian Aerospace move confirmed

After much speculation, the Singapore authorities have confirmed that Asian Aerospace is moving to a new site in 2008.
Dr Tony Tan, deputy prime minister and coordinating minister for Security And Defence, announced the plan in his speech at the show’s opening ceremony on Monday night.

“The government has decided to build a brand new home at a larger, better-equipped exhibition centre located at Changi North for the 2008 airshow,” he said.

“The new exhibition centre will be equipped with the most modern facilities to enable exhibitors to show their products and services and participants to attend the show, transact deals and meet with their business contacts comfortably and conveniently.”

The announcement was welcomed by Mike Rusbridge, chairman of show organiser Reed Exhibitions. If he has his way, the new home for Asian Aerospace will be what he calls an “ideal venue” for the region’s top airshow.

Rusbridge wouldn’t be drawn on specifics such as the size of the site or development cost, hinting it might be impolitic to comment on details of a project which is a Singapore government-funded initiative.

But he says the government has all of Reed’s input on specifications for the site and structures, including what exhibitors and participants want. They include a more “structured” layout, with a series of interconnected halls and spaces, roughly double the present capacity. That should address criticism of the hard-standing of the current site, which users have said could be more accessible. Parking space, a bane for many visitors, should also improve.

Work, including access roads, has already begun on the new site at the northern tip of new Runway 3 at Changi airport.

Asian Aerospace 2004 Scores with Record Deals Signed, Delegations and Trade Visitor Attendance

Singapore – Asian Aerospace 2004 (AA2004) re-affirms its position as the world’s second most influential airshow announcing US$3.52 billion worth of deals over the four trade days of the exhibition. Adding to this record amount were many other significant deals with undisclosed figures.

This amount surpassed the US$3.2 billion announced after the 2002 show, indicative of the continued optimistic growth that the global aviation and aerospace industry is experiencing in the recent months.

“This has been a really fantastic show, definitely one of the best so far. Bell Helicopter has closed US$20 million worth of deals at AA2004 and we have plans for a bigger presence at the next show,” said a spokesperson from Bell Helicopter.

AA2004 played host to 148 official delegations from 47 countries. Guests that attended the show included top government and military leaders from around the world, cementing Singapore’s strategic positioning as a global aviation hub, and an ideal location for international events.

Mr Ed Ng, President of Asian Aerospace Pte Ltd said, “Asian Aerospace has once again proven to be a must-attend show for aviation and aerospace companies eyeing the growing Asia-Pacific market. The new business opportunities developed and the partnerships forged at the show will continue to benefit participants even after the show ends.”

The event scored another new record in trade visitor turnout. Based on tabulations as of Friday, February 27, the number of trade visitors at AA2004 has already exceeded last show’s record of 23,433, reinforcing the successes of the show’s value added initiatives and events that reflect the latest aviation and aerospace technologies.

“CTT Systems is very glad to be at AA2004. We have seen many high quality visitors and it is encouraging to see so many people at the show. It is good to see that people are still investing in the industry after such difficult times.” said Gunnar Nilsson, Director Sales and Marketing, CTT Systems AB – Sweden.

The exhibition featured 758 exhibitors from 33 countries, who continue to lend their support and offer visitors a sample of the latest products of the aviation and aerospace industry.

Mr Syed Mohd Fazilla, Executive Publisher, Asian Defence Journal complimented, “Asian Aerospace 2004 is probably one of the best and most well organised airshows we have ever attended.”
...........

PLUS economic spinoffs such as shopping, hotel, transport etc and reputation as a key air hub and MICE hub......

BTW 21% of visitors come to Singapore due to MICE......so I think it definitely worth it........
