Dubai Airport sees 9.2% passenger growth last year

Dubai International Airport announced on Wednesday passenger number growth of 9.2 percent in 2009.

The airport recorded a total of 40.9 million passengers last year, cementing its position as one of the world’s fastest growing airports for international passengers in 2009, officials said in a statement.

The only airports other than Dubai to report increases are Istanbul, with 6.3 percent, Kuala Lumpur, with 4.6 percent and Cairo with 1.5 percent growth, according to figures from the Airports Council International.

Dubai airport handled a total of 3,816,360 passengers in December, compared to 3,333,424 passengers during the same month the previous year – an increase of 14.5 percent.

This was the seveth consecutive double digit monthly increase in passenger traffic seen by the airport, the statement said.

The full year passenger throughput reached 40,901,752 passengers for 2009, compared to 37,441,440 passengers recorded in 2008.

"Dubai Airports is setting the pace globally. Dubai International's performance as one of the world's fastest growing airports in 2009 is particularly impressive considering the traffic contraction seen globally," said Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, chairman of Dubai Airports and chief executive of Emirates Airline.

Cargo volumes were up also up 5.6 percent in 2009, following a 26 percent jump in December volumes, the statement said.

The full year cargo traffic reached 1,927,520 tonnes in 2009, compared to 1,824,991 tonnes during 2008.

Cargo growth was mainly driven by major international conventions and events, a gradual improvement in the global economy and expansion by the airport's largest cargo carrier Emirates Airline, the statement said.

The airport is predicted to see continued growth this year with a forecast of 13.6 percent growth to 46 million passengers, the firm said.

“Dubai International has capacity for 60 million passengers per year, and that will increase to 75 million passengers when Concourse 3 is completed in 2012," said Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports.

No. Not even close. It may be in some years, but today it's still very far away from the being the largest. In 2008, it was at nr. 20 for passengers carried, and nr. 13 for cargo. It'll have moved up a bit in 2009, but nowhere near being number 2.

I think what he meant to ask was whether Dubai International Airport's terminal 3 is second largest passenger terminal in the world. To which, the answer is: "No, it isn't." In fact, it is the largest single passenger terminal complex in the world, with a total floor area of 1,500,000 square meters.

And besides, he didn't use the term "busiest," did he? He used the term "largest."

Amazing airport.

What happened with the flight from Dubai to Buenos Aires Emirates said will do?

At the moment there's only a flight to Sao Paulo in hole South America...

The 30 of May, Qatar Airways starts flights to Buenos Aires via Sao Paulo... I hope they make competence with Emirates

El Al also planned to fly from Tel Aviv to Buenos Aires
