Dubai Airport has announced it saw a surge in the number of people passing though the terminals during March.

Dubai Airport has announced it has seen another month of great success as the number of people who passed through the terminal increased by 15.4 per cent.

The international airport witnessed this impressive rise that saw its visitor numbers for the month reach 4,848,320, far ahead of the figures recorded for March 2011.

It is the third consecutive month that the airport has seen its passenger numbers increase in double-digits and also the third time in a row that the numbers have topped 4.5 million.

As a result of these increases, the airport has also seen more than 14 million travellers during the first quarter of the year.

“As growth continues to pick up in almost all markets, both traditional and new, the outlook for the second quarter is similarly positive,” said Paul Griffiths, chief executive officer of Dubai Airports.

The news comes shortly after it was predicted the airport would soon overtake London’s Heathrow as the busiest in the world and would see 90 million passengers a year by 2020.
