Dubai becomes world’s busiest airport Overtakes Amsterdam

Dubai International (DXB) reclaimed its position as the world’s busiest airport in October as the Emirates airport handled 13 Million passengers in the first seven months of 2021.

Senior Dubai officials project passenger traffic to see significant growth in the next six months in wake of the ongoing Expo 2020.

Dubai Airport has also projected remarkable growth for DXB in the second half of 2021.“Government took strategic decisions and offered the right incentives to enable the country to overcome the effects of the pandemic and put us in the right position to lead the world’s economic recovery, and build bridges across the world to accelerate the recovery process, especially in aviation and tourism sectors,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), chairman of Dubai Airports and chairman and CEO of Emirates Group.

“The economic indicators issued by the authorities suggest we are on the right path, and that we are on the way to full recovery. The start of Expo 2020 Dubai is the start of realising this task,” Sheikh Ahmed said in the DCAA’s ViaDubai magazine.

Dubai airports also handled the movement of a considerable volume of cargo, during these seven months. Frankfurt, London Heathrow, Istanbul, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Doha, Madrid, Antalya, and Vienna airports were among the 10 busiest airports in October. DXB clocked 10.6 million passengers in the first six months of 2021 despite travel restrictions.
