Dubai Airports: “The pace of the growth we’re seeing is frenetic thanks to capacity increases, gradually improving economic conditions and rising consumer confidence. Although last week’s operational disruptions due to European airspace closures will have an impact on April’s traffic results, the strong surge of traffic created as airlines clear the backlog across their networks will go a long way in making up the difference,” Paul Griffiths, CEO, Dubai Airports.
