Dubai International Airport Accommodates Nearly 10,000 Flights Per Week

Dubai’s primary airport reported on Tuesday that annual passenger traffic increased by 127% to 66.1 million last year, exceeding its own projection. Around 10,000 flights per week are accommodated at Dubai International Airport.

As the United Arab Emirates gears up to host significant international events, including the COP28 climate summit, Dubai International Airport (DXB), a significant international hub, is expected to welcome 78 million people this year.

The airport’s operator, Dubai Airports, predicted that DXB passenger traffic will reach 64.3 million in 2022, in November.

According to Paul Griffiths, chief executive of Dubai Airports, 60% of passengers passing through DXB, the airline Emirates’ hub, are transfers, and 40% are travellers with origin and destination travel plans.

While the figures are still below the volumes reached before the COVID-19 pandemic, Griffiths said he wouldn’t be surprised if they began to exceed pre-pandemic monthly levels during the second half of this year.
