Dubai Airports pax traffic up 6.8% in Aug-2010

Dubai International Airport traffic up 6.8% - traffic highlights in Aug-2010:

  • Passenger numbers: 3.98 million, +9.8%;
  • Air cargo: 198,543 tonnes, +21.5%.

Dubai Airports: “Growth continues from the very strong base that was established last year and is largely the result of the rapid expansion of flydubai, which is now the second largest source of passenger traffic at Dubai International, and the broadening of Emirates’ already impressive network with the addition of new destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia. Over the past 12 months we’ve seen our rolling passenger total rise to 45 million which puts us on track to meet our projection for 46 million.” Paul Griffiths, CEO. Source: Gulf News, 23-Sep-2010.
