Singapore has one of the world's best airports: not an idle boast when you consider the amount of people that move through Changi Airport's gates on a daily basis. As Travel Daily News reported last month,

Singapore Changi Airport registered its highest number of passengers for the month of October when 4.27 million movements were recorded last month, 10.0% more than in the same period last year. At the same time, Changi handled 27,600 flight movements, an increase of 5.2% over October 2011.

[...] Traffic to and from traditional growth regions such as Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and Southwest Pacific also increased by double-digits, accentuating Changi Airport's status as a major Asia-Pacific air hub.

As of October, too, traffic through Changi Airport surpassed the 40-million mark, increasing 9.9 percent from the same point last year. The airport is expected to end 2012 "with more than 50 million passenger movements", reports Travel Daily News.
