Dubai Airport Second Busiest in the World

Dubai Airport Second Busiest in the WorldDubai Airport has been confirmed as the world’s second busiest airport for international passenger traffic, moving ahead of Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport for the first time. Since the start of the year Dubai Airport has moved up 2 positions in the global rankings and now has London Heathrow’s title as the world’s busiest international airport firmly within its sights.

The rankings were confirmed by the latest figures published by Airports Council International, the Dubai Airports company said in a statement. Dubai Airport has maintained its impressive passenger growth in 2013, with passenger traffic at Dubai International Airport rising 13% to 10,640,120 passengers in the first 2 months of this year, up from 9,413,286 for the same period in 2012.

Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths said.

“It is extremely gratifying to see Dubai International leap up 2 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. 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,”
