Dubai numbers

Dubai International’s passenger traffic hit 32.6m in the first half of this year, making it the busiest six months in the airport’s history.  It is believed that about 80% of the numbers were in transit.  The average monthly figure recorded January – June stood at 5.44m compared to 4.65m during the corresponding period in 2012.

“The first half this year has been very satisfying with double-digit growth across all markets, boosted by the launch of 84 new services to 25 destinations.  A major driver of growth was Emirates airline’s tie-up with Qantas and consequent launch of the Australian carrier’s operations into Dubai.  A number of major events are lined up for the remainder of the year – including the opening of the passenger operations at Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International in October followed by the Dubai Airshow 2013 in November – making the second half even more promising”, said Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports.
 
Passenger traffic at Dubai International is expected to surpass 65.4m in 2013.  Business Travel News plans to COMMENT on international airport expansion in the 12 August edition.  See also Airlines set for Growth in this edition. www.dubaiairport.com
