Dubai Airports: “We are seeing expansion across the board, not only from our usual top flight destinations such as India, the UK, Iran and Germany but we are also seeing significant increases in passenger traffic to and from the US, China and Australia … Clearly Dubai’s aviation model is working. Open skies, supportive government policies, Dubai’s attractiveness as a business and leisure destination as well as its ideal location as a convenient global transit point are behind this impressive growth.” Paul Griffiths, CEO.
