Top Spot: Dubai International Airport is number one

Dubai has broken yet another record.

Our super-size airport, DXB, has officially become the busiest in the world!

According to the airport’s latest data, it seems that passenger traffic rose from 5.57 to 6.01 million passengers in a year which is even higher than London’s Heathrow Airport traffic.

CEO of Dubai Airports, Paul Griffiths said in one of his statements: “We’re very pleased with the growth in passenger traffic at DXB in 2015 during which the airport registered an average monthly traffic of nearly 6.5 million customers. We are sure the seasonal peaks that we experienced in December will help round off the year with an impressive annual figure.”

Dubai just keeps on impressing us with another record, the busiest airport worldwide with its strongest markets: Eastern Europe, North America and expanding the Emirates Airlines’ destinations throughout the United States.

In addition, Dubai International Airport handled 218,323 tonnes of cargo in November 2015, an increase of 3.8 per cent compared to 210,251 tonnes recorded during November of the year 2014.

The geographical location of DXB and the good services it provides are one of the reasons of its success.
