Dubai International records 17% increase in passenger numbers for June

Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) catered for 5,914,671 passengers in June 2015, a 16.7% increase compared to the 5,067,726 travelers recorded for the same month in 2014.

The year-to-date traffic surged 10.4% to reach 38,299,291, compared to 34,676,090 during the first half of 2014. The increase in traffic during June can be attributed to the runway refurbishment project that took place between May and July last year, during which the airport was reduced to a single runway operation. The surge in traffic was countered by a drop in the number of passengers during the holy month of Ramadan which fell in June this year.

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said, “The seasonal travel rush hit its first peak in late June and, like every year, we were ready with our annual summer campaign and additional resources to ease passenger journey through our airport.

“We are very satisfied with the growth numbers in the first half of the year and anticipate the growth trend to continue throughout the remainder of second half to help us reach our annual forecast of over 79 million passengers.”
