DXB Records Highest Passenger Traffic
Updated on 03 October 2018

August is always one of the busiest months at Dubai International Airport (DXB), and this year was no different.

With 8.37 million passengers passing through the airport in August 2018, DXB has broken all its own previous records and all records globally. In August 2017, the figures closed at 8.23 million, 1.7% less than this year’s total number of 8,376,478 passengers.

DXB crossed the eight-million-customer mark for the second consecutive month as July also witnessed 8.2 million passengers.

Dubai Airports’ CEO Paul Griffiths said, “ It’s another milestone for Dubai Airports as we continue to break records and set the bar even higher. While the numbers speak volumes about our growth, our aim is to continue pushing the boundaries on experience and provide customers with the best possible service. We are making progress on that front as well with shorter queue times, world-leading F&B and retail and other touches like spas, swimming pools and trampolines that help us stand out from the crowd.”

India remained DXB’s top destination country with total traffic reaching 1,012,124 during the month, followed by Saudi Arabia  with 613,618 passengers and the U.K. with 603,531. The top three cities were London with 371,574 customers, Kuwait with 272,607 and Mumbai with 210,820.
