The latest statistics from ACI show Dubai International Airport (IATA DXB) has moved ahead of Paris Charles de Gaulle and Hong Kong in terms of international passenger traffic.
The DXB press office has issued a statement saying that it now had London
Heathrow’s title as the world’s busiest international airport: “firmly within
its sights.”
Dubai Airports has maintained its passenger growth in 2013, with passenger traffic at Dubai International rising 13% to 10,640,120 passengers in the first two months of this year, up from 9,413,286 for the same period in 2012.
“It is extremely gratifying to see Dubai International leap up two places in the international passenger rankings in a single year.  It is a clear signal that more people are
choosing Dubai as their preferred hub not only for its extensive global network but the superb facilities on the ground too,” said Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths.
“Given our surging growth rate and London Heathrow’s capacity constraints we are well
placed to overtake them as the world’s busiest airport for international traffic by 2015.”
