Dubai International Airport’s passenger traffic soars by 9.5 per cent


Currently undergoing expansion to handle 20 million passengers by 2020.

Passenger traffic through Dubai International Airport rose by 9.5 per cent, from a year earlier in November, to 5.3 million people, airport authorities announced this week.

Western Europe recorded the largest increase in total passenger numbers in November 2013, followed by the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East region, Australasia and Africa, Dubai Airports reveals in a statement.

Year-to-date passengers totalled 60.4 million people, an increase of 15.3 per cent.

Cargo volumes rose by 11.6 per cent, reaching 223,195 tonnes in November 2013, and by 6.7 per cent to 2.2 million tonnes in the first 11 months of 2013.

In August, Dubai International Airport enjoyed record-breaking passenger numbers of nearly six million (5,999,375), making it the busiest month in its history. The surge was the result of a strong growth in nearly all of the markets and the effect of Ramadan and Eid, which further boosted traffic.

Dubai International Airport is undergoing a $7.8 billion expansion to raise its capacity to accommodate approximately 100 million passengers by 2020.

For now, the goal is to handle 75 million passengers by 2015, and become the world’s busiest and biggest airport, according to Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and chairman of Dubai Airports and Emirates Airline. “This figure will help Dubai International Airport top the list of the busiest and biggest airports in the world in terms of international passenger capacity, overtaking London Heathrow,” he said in July.
