Dubai International Airport handled more than four million passengers during October as it continues to see an increase in people taking flights to Dubai.
Paul Griffiths, chief executive officer of Dubai Airports, said: “Over the past 50 years Dubai International has seen passenger numbers increase by an average 15.5 per cent annually.
“Before the end of the decade passenger numbers will approach 90 million making Dubai International the busiest airport in the world in terms of international passenger traffic.”
Figures show the largest increase in passenger numbers was on flights to and from Western Europe and the Indian subcontinent.
Dubai International Airport has two departure terminals and offers e-check-in options to help reduce passenger waiting times.
