Dubai International welcomes 7.2 million passengers in September

By Hibah Noor

Dubai International (DXB) served 7.2 million passengers in September as traffic at the world’s busiest international hub rose to 67.5 million for the year.

Traffic fell slightly (-0.2%) in September versus last year due to the fact that Eid Al Adha holidays fell in September 2017.

It was the sixth time this year that DXB’s monthly traffic surpassed the 7 million mark, helping finish off the third quarter with 23.8 million customers, up 1%.

The airport welcomed 7,197,866 passengers in September (- 0.2%) taking DXB’s year-to-date numbers to 67,521,436 (+1.4%).

India remained DXB’s top destination country by customer volume, with total traffic reaching 957,748 during the month. The UK was second with 538,199 customers, followed by Saudi Arabia with 454,929 customers. Other markets of note included Australia (256,848), the US (252,264) and China (208,822).

The top three cities were London (329,778 passengers), Mumbai (199,829) and New Delhi (170,122).

Fastest-growing regions were North America, up by 15.2%, Africa up 10.9% and the CIS, growing 6.8%.

Flight movements during the month increased to 33,610 (+1.4%). The average number of customers per flight was 221, down marginally (-1.3%).

A total of 306,210 flights have taken-off or landed (-0.5%) so far this year, bringing the total number of flight movements per day to 1,125.
