Dubai international airport recieve 28.78 million passenger

Dubai International Airport had yet another successful year in 2006 with the annual passenger throughput reaching 28,788,726 – a growth of 16.17 per cent. The airport had handled some 24.78 million passengers in 2005. Passenger throughput is expected to cross 33 million this year.

The growth rate in passenger throughput registered in 2006 means that for the sixth consecutive year, the airport has continued to grow well over an average of 15 per cent annually. A total of 113 scheduled airlines and 25 frequent charter airlines are operating through Dubai International Airport.

December was the busiest month for the airport in 2006 with 2.731 million passengers passing through, while just over 2.5 million and 2.4 million passengers were recorded in July and September respectively. April and November, however, remained on top in terms of growth rate with a comparative growth of 21.48 and 19.65 per cent respectively over the corresponding months in 2005.

Cargo movement continued its upward trend in 2006 with Dubai Cargo Village registering a growth of 5.85 per cent over 2005. The facility handled a total of 1,410,963 tonnes of cargo in 2006 as compared to 1,333,014 tonnes in 2005. December was the most successful month for the Cargo Village in 2006 with 128,418 tonnes of cargo handled.

For 2006, aircraft movement at Dubai International Airport witnessed a healthy growth of 9.25 per cent over 2005. The airport handled a total of 237,258 flights, as against 217,165 flights in 2005. The busiest period for the airport in terms of aircraft movement was in December with over 21,518 flights.

“Dubai International Airport has been growing at an average of 15 per cent annually since 2000, and we expect the growth rate to pick up pace and climb further up over the coming years,” said HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Department of Civil Aviation and Chairman and CEO of Emirates Group.

He said that despite the rate and pace of growth, the airport has improved the quality of its services to passengers, who voted the facility the world’s best in a prominent polls during 2006. “It is the result of the dedication and perseverance of one and all at the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation and the staff at the airport. It is a reason for all of us to take pride in,” he commented.

Dubai continues to grow and has positioned itself as the most preferred business and leisure destination in the region, thereby increasing manifold the significance of the role Dubai International Airport will play in the nation’s overall development, Sheikh Ahmed said. The facility is connected to over 194 destinations through a network of 113 international airlines.

Sheikh Ahmed noted that considering the continuous growth in passenger throughout, the ongoing expansion project involving Concourse 2 and 3 and Terminal 3 appear appropriately timed. The expanded facility will be capable of handling a projected 70 million passengers by 2008.

no, what they said is that because the new terminal will be opened by the 3rd quarter of 2007 the airport will be capable to handle 70 millions in 2008.

Why do they expect the numbers to grow exponentially and not just at the same rate as now? I doubt this 2010 number will be reached because of the delays in the A380 planes

lol, a jump from 49 mil to 60 mil (2009 -2010) 11 million increase !!, that doesnt seem very realisitc,

i think the growth will be more linear than exponential from now on (esp after A380 issues)

If we had a 16% growth, as we did in the last couple of years, it would be as follow:

2006: 28.78
2007: 33.38
2008: 38.72
2009: 44.91
2010: 52.01

Not bad at all.

i dunno if this has been posted, its from today, so...


LONDON, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Dubai-based Emirates [EMAIR.UL] expects planemaker Airbus (EAD.PA: Quote, Profile , Research) to take a "massive write-off" after the two sides negotiate late charges for delayed deliveries of the Airbus A380 superjumbo.

"I am sure we will come to a compromise, which Airbus will take as a massive write-off," Emirates President Tim Clark said in this week's issue of magazine Flight International.

"We now have a figure, and in the next few weeks we will begin talking," he said.

An Airbus spokesman declined to comment.

Emirates has ordered 43 of the $300 million planes, making it by far the largest buyer of the plane, whose delay has triggered demands for late fees to be paid to carriers, which must make alternative plans until the aircraft arrive. Trouble with the wiring of the mammoth double-deckers has delayed deliveries by about two years, and Singapore Airlines (SIAL.SI: Quote, Profile , Research) is now expected to take the first one late this year.

Emirates was originally meant to begin taking the planes in April 2006 but now will not see its first until August 2008.

Clark said Emirates expected to grow by 14 percent in the year to April 2008, versus an estimated 30 percent if the A380s had been delivered on schedule.

In October, Clark told reporters that the difference equated to a revenue shortfall of "hundreds of millions of dollars".

He also said then that the A380 was running 5.5 tonnes overweight, which would be another topic of discussion regarding performance guarantees, which are part of the order.

Emirates is not only a huge customer for the A380 but the airline is also looking to buy as many as 100 mid-sized, long-range planes.

Airbus is offering its A350 XWB due in 2013 versus Boeing Co.'s (BA.N: Quote, Profile , Research) 787 due in 2008 for a deal that could be worth $15 billion at list prices.

Airbus is really facing some serious problems...

For Emirates it is "just" a matter of less growth while for Airbus it might be a real problem.
