No surprise there, especially when you compare with Delta/United/American and they wonder why the ME-3 carriers are rapidly expanding services to the US...

Granted the majority that is leisure and transit traffic, but there is a significant amount business traffic as well.
I thought Dubai was the busiest....what is no.1 if DXB is in 2nd position?

yes....my question was about routes...I though Doha Dubai was the busiest route for both the airports....given that Qatar Airways had a flight almost every hour and the same being the case with Emirates and Fly Dubai!!

Is LHR still number 1 for Dubai?

Here are the top city destinations from DXB:

1. London: 3,751,596
2. Doha: 2,999,762
3. Mumbai: 2,357,103

Keep in mind that London includes both LHR and LGW. LHR is served 6x daily by EK, 2x daily by Qantas, 2-4x daily by BA, 1x daily by BI and VS, and LGW is served 3x daily by EK. Moreover, this number should drop now that Qantas is dropping MEL-DXB-LHR next April.

And these are the top countries from DXB with India being the obvious #1 destination:

1. India: 11,440,215
2. Saudi Arabia: 6,086,158
3. UK: 6,061,342

Where can I get detailed figures like these for other destinations from DXB?

It's not easily available. Dubai Airports only mentioned their top 3 destinations in their press release for 2016. However many Western airports like JFK, CDG, SYD etc. give detailed statistics, so you can see the amount of traffic to DXB using their numbers.

The most detailed information DXB released about their traffic was in 2014.

Mastercard releases their annual destinations ranking for international visitors, and this is what they said about Dubai in 2016:

Dubai’s five top feeder cities:
1. Doha: 1.1m visitors
2. London: 1m visitors
3. Kuwait: 0.96m visitors
4. Jeddah: 0.54m visitors
5. Riyadh: 0.47m visitors

However remember that these figures are only the amount of foreign visitors to Dubai from these countries. They don't represent the total O&D traffic between these destinations as it doesn't include travel by Emiratis and UAE residents.

haha man the way things are heading, I'm sure this issue won't be over anytime soon unfortunately. Might end in a stalemate even who knows. But why are you that concerned? I'm asking of course, in relevance to flights or your travel plans (if you have any) At least, u won't have any problems flying with any of the airlines from ME3 to any of those destinations I suppose haha

Emirates to deepen flydubai ties, delays DWC hub move

Dubai's two mainline carriers, the full-service Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) and its low-cost sister flydubai (FZ, Dubai Int'l), are set to boost their commercial ties...

Seems like we will see a Singapore Airlines x Silkair relationship between Emirates and flydubai.

They should just merge them!! Have one big brand!!
Abu Dhabi should spend some cash in their home ground and buy Air Arabia!!
If low cost carriers are giving them a bad time as Etihad seems to claim, they should buy them..After all they are cheaper in market value than the legacy ones and a lot of work and time is required to generate profits out of the full service ones!!

Abu Dhabi removed from laptop ban list

Abu Dhabi has been removed from the list of 10 airports from which US-bound passengers are required to check large personal electronic devices rather than carry the devices on board aircraft.

The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said Abu Dhabi International Airport, which has a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) pre-clearance facility, was inspected by DHS officials who determined Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways and the airport had implemented new security standards required for all US-bound commercial flights. When US homeland security secretary John Kelly announced the new requirements last week, DHS said the 10 airports on the so-called laptop ban list could have the restrictions lifted if they implemented the new security standards....

So much for this being a veiled attempt to stop the ME3. There are talks that Emirates will also be soon removed from the list. No idea how that'd work without preclearance though.

I wonder what the new security measures are? Will keep an eye out when I transit through Abu Dhabi.

So, laptops are now terrorist-proof? It's pretty clear the ban was just a protectionist scam.

I loved flying them and plan to do more flights with them in the future. Hoping that this fiasco doesn't ruin such a wonderful airline. I'd also like to fly between Doha and the other GCC countries in the future like I did with Emirates on Doha-Dubai, another wonderful experience.

It won't ruin QR/EK/EY generally speaking and they'll continue to take aircraft deliveries and grow further, although I must say they lost a large chunk of passengers/income from DXB/AUH/DOH. This may force them to reduce/increase frequencies and/or capacities at certain routes (mostly to Asia - keep in mind these countries have large labor populations and transit traffic). Plus they may also face under utilization of some of their aircraft.
