According to reports, the summer of 2015 is expected to be a record-breaking one for the Dubai International Airport.
The reports say that during June, July and August, Dnata, Dubai’s air travel service provider, is expected to handle over 50,000 flights, 20 million passengers and 30 million bags from around the world. This means that the airport will handle a flight every 80 seconds, on average.
Further, Dnata also expects to welcome over 90,000 people through Marhaba’s meet and greet service, and 230,000 people in Marhaba lounges throughout Dubai’s airports.
According to a report in Gulf Business, Emirates said that nearly 62,000 passengers boarded flights in the last weekend of June from Dubai to other destinations.
