In The Spotlight
Dubai International Airport maintained its position as the world's busiest airport for international passengers for the fifth consecutive year. Indian travellers were the largest source of traffic for the airport which registered a record footfall of over 89 million.

Dubai International Airport saw its 2018 passenger traffic increase to 89.1 million compared to 88.2 million in the previous year, missing its target of 90.3 million due to a slowdown in Gulf economies amid lower oil prices. It is the slowest growth for Dubai airport in the past decade. India remained the biggest source of traffic for the airport, accounting for more than 12.2 million travellers. Most of them were coming from the Indian cities of Mumbai, Delhi and Cochin.
Saudis came second over 6.4 million passengers, overtaking travellers from the United Kingdom. About 6.3 million British nationals used the airport. Apart from these countries, 3.5 million flyers from China, 3.2 million from the United States and about 1.5 million from Russia arrived at Dubai airport.
The airport exceeded the 8 million passenger mark twice last year, particularly in July, when passenger numbers reached 8.2 million, and in August, which logged 8.4 million flyers, making it the busiest month in the history of the airport since it started operations in 1960. It overtook the crown of the world's busiest hub for international travel from London's Heathrow in 2014.
