Dubai Airport reports 13% rise in Jul-2009 pax numbers

UAE's Dubai International Airport reports (19-Aug-09) the following traffic highlights in Jul-2009:

  • Passenger numbers: 3.8 million, +12.6% year-on-year;
  • Cargo volume: 160,289 tonnes, +1.9%. [more]

Dubai Airports: “The Middle East continues to demonstrate vibrant growth during the global economic downturn and Dubai International is at the epicentre of that growth. The double-digit increases we’ve seen in the past two months are the direct result of a boost in passenger numbers from Emirates and other long-haul network carriers and continual growth in the low cost sector. As for cargo, considering that airports around the world continue to record sharp decline in freight traffic, we have fared well,” Paul Griffiths, Dubai Airports, CEO, Source: Dubai Airports, 19-Aug-09.
