Dubai International Airport reported (15-Mar-2016) a 6.3% year-on-year increase to 7.3 million passengers and an 8.2% increase to 201,483 tonnes of cargo and a 3.7% increase to 35,914 aircraft movements in Jan-2016. DXB CEO Paul Griffiths said: "The record passenger numbers in January confirm that the growth trend from last year has continued into 2016 and we are on course to meet our projection of 85 million passengers that we expect to pass through our airport this year. Concourse D's opening in February has increased DXB's capacity to 90 million passengers a year, allowing us to continue to accommodate the rising number of people whilst boosting service levels. In the months ahead we will begin the complete refurbishment of Concourse C which will further improve passenger flows and the overall customer experience." [more - original PR]
