Dubai International remains world’s busiest hub for international traffic

Dubai International Airport in the UAE has retained its position as the world’s number one hub for international passengers by registering annual traffic of just over 78 million for 2015.

Boosted by the growth of airline operators such as Emirates and flydubai, annual passenger traffic at Dubai Airport reached a record 78,014,838 passengers in 2015, a 10.7% increase when compared with the 70,473,893 recorded in 2014. Aircraft movements in 2015 reached 403,517, up 14.1% compared with 2014.

A traditionally strong market, India retained its position as Dubai International’s single largest destination country in 2015 with 10,391,376 passengers, a year on year growth of 17%. The UK was placed second with 5,682,307 passengers (+6%) followed closely by Saudi Arabia at 5,466,358 (+12%).

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, the airport operator, said, “It’s another banner year for Dubai International where we broke records, engaged and entertained our customers in new ways, and retained our position as the world’s number one international hub. But we have no time to rest on our laurels as we are already busy testing the readiness our newest facility, the US$1.2bn Concourse D, which, when it opens for our 70 plus airlines this quarter, will play a crucial role in helping us welcome millions of passengers in comfort and style.”
