Record Numbers at Dubai International

Dubai International welcomed over 7.7 million passengers in August, eclipsing its previous record achieved in July.

Based on data released by Dubai Airports, the figure marks a 6.1 percent year-on-year increase, mostly due to additional capacity and new services launched by a number of carriers, including Emirates and flydubai.

The fastest-growing region in terms of percentage boost proved to be Eastern Europe, followed by Asia, South America and the Indian subcontinent.

During the month under review, the average number of passengers per flight stood at 237, one of the highest figure in the hub’s history.

“As we continue to grow, our focus will continue [to be] to operate not only the world’s busiest airports but also the world’s best in terms of customer service,” pledged Paul Griffiths, CEO, Dubai Airports.
