Dubai To Record 64.5 Million Travelers At Airports By Year-End

On November 22, Dubai Airports increased its yearly forecast for passenger traffic at Dubai International to 64.3 million. The hub has displayed a tremendous performance in the third quarter and officials are now expecting a stronger surge in the last three months of 2022.

The second half of the year had a great start with average monthly traffic exceeding the 6-million mark.

The hub recorded 18.5 million passengers in Q3, the first time that quarterly traffic reached pre-pandemic levels since 2020.

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said, “The growth in passenger traffic has been terrific throughout the year and continues to exceed our expectations by a margin. While we are thrilled with the numbers, what really gives us immense satisfaction is how the airport community is working together like a well-oiled machine to keep raising the bar on service quality.”

Pakistan, India, the UK, and Saudi Arabia are the top destinations in terms of traffic volume.
