PASSENGER TRAFFIC at Dubai Internatio­nal (DXB) reached 20.7 million in the year to date to October, which operator Dubai Airports attributes to “changes in travel restrictio­ns in key global markets”, generating “renewed confidence in the prospects of internatio­nal travel”.

“Significan­t market developmen­ts such as the UK’s vaccinatio­n-based travel programme, the resumption of flights to several important destinatio­ns in Australasi­a and the relaxation of restrictio­ns for travel between India and the USA have all contribute­d to an upward revision in our forecast for the year by an additional two million passengers to 28.7 million,” said Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths. He added that it was in response to this sustained increase in demand that the final piece of aviation infrastruc­ture at DXB that was hibernated in response to the global pandemic, Concourse A, would reopen before the end of November 2021.
