Dubai to become “busiest airport in the world” by 2015

Dramatic prediction of 98.5 million passengers at Dubai Airports by 2020

International traffic at Dubai International and Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International will increase so rapidly over the next decade that Dubai Airports forecasts that it will become the world’s busiest airport by 2015. Growth is forecast to rise at 7.2% a year on average for international passengers and 6.7% for cargo, outperforming worldwide growth according to industry projections of 5%. By 2020, passenger numbers will reach 98.5 million.
“We are eight hours from two-thirds of the world’s population and on the doorstep of two of the most dynamic markets in the world – India and China,” Paul Griffiths, Dubai Airports’ CEO, explained. Passenger traffic in Dubai has increased at an average annual rate of 15.5% over the past 50 years. Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 was voted “Middle East’s Leading Airport” at the Middle East leg of the World Travel Awards 2011 held this week at the Armani Hotel Dubai inside the Burj Khalifa.
