High volumes and steady growth continued at Dubai International Airport, UAE, in April with more than 6.5 million passengers passing through the airport, according to the monthly traffic report issued by operator Dubai Airports on June 18.
Passenger numbers rose 5.7% to 6,510,653, up from 6,159,634 in April 2014. This is the third time in the first four months that monthly traffic at the hub has surpassed the 6.5 million mark. During the first four months of 2015, Dubai International welcomed 26,116,980 passengers, compared with 24,521,454 passengers during the same period last year, an increase of 6.5%.
“Traffic grew steadily in the first four months of the year and the trend looks set to continue throughout the first half, especially with the summer travel peak just round the corner,” said Paul Griffiths, CEO at Dubai Airports.
“We are again expecting record traffic levels at Dubai International this summer and again we will be deploying additional resources from the curb to the boarding gates to ease the flow of passengers through our facility,” he added.
