Abu Dhabi International Airport reports 14% increase in passenger traffic

Abu Dhabi International Airport has reported a 14.1% increase in passenger traffic in January 2016 compared with the same month last year, with a total of 2,154,241 people traveling through the airport last month, up from 1,887, 631 in January 2015.

“The remarkable growth of Abu Dhabi as a global destination for business and leisure has catalyzed the corresponding increase in passenger numbers for the month of January,” said Ahmad Al Haddabi, chief operations officer at Abu Dhabi Airports.

“The ongoing expansion of Etihad Airways’ operations continues to drive up the number of passengers traveling to and from Abu Dhabi. Its strategic partnerships have also made a significant impact, as highlighted by the recent announcement by Etihad Airways of a 63% increase in annual passenger traffic between India and Abu Dhabi with partner Jet Airways.”

Aircraft movements in January 2016 reached 14,514, up by 2.7% to 14,128 movements recorded in January 2015. Bangkok, London Heathrow, Doha, Bombay and Jeddah featured as the top-five destinations from Abu Dhabi International Airport. Several destinations saw significant growth in passenger traffic, with Italy surpassing its January 2015 figures by 79.2% last month, and Australia posting a 37.7% increase in the same timeframe.

Al Haddabi added, “Our multi-faceted growth will be accompanied by a sustained commitment toward cooperation with our airline partners and airport stakeholders to ensure a world-class experience for all passengers who fly through Abu Dhabi International Airport.”
