Dubai Airport is on track to become one of the world’s busiest airports this year.
People travelling on flights to Dubai are helping the terminal to become one of the busiest in the world.
The terminal is enjoying a record year of growth and is currently on track to be named the second busiest in the world by the end of the year.
Passenger growth at the airport grew by 7.3 per cent year on year to October to a total of 4.3 million, despite there being a drop in travellers visiting the Middle East overall across the period.
If passenger numbers continue to rise at the same rate it will result in the airport overtaking Paris and Hong Kong in terms of passenger numbers.
“New routes, additional frequencies and extra capacity continue to drive passenger traffic growth at the Dubai hub,” said Dubai Airports chief executive officer Paul Griffiths.
An event which may have encouraged more people to take flights to Dubai recently is the Internationally Rally, which is currently taking place to coincide with National Day.
