Civil Air Traffic

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)’ roles are to enable the growth of the air hub and aviation industry, oversee and promote safety in the industry, provide air navigation services, and develop Singapore as a centre of excellence for aviation knowledge and human resource development.

Statistics on passenger, airfreight, parcel mail and aircraft movements are compiled by the CAAS from the data collected by the CAG.
