CEO of Dubai Airports, Paul Griffiths, said it is an auspicious start to what is sure to be another record-breaking year for DXB.
He added that the performance in January provided further impetus to the DXB Plus Programme, which would enhance service and boost capacity at DXB by applying technology to improved processes.
Eastern Europe remained the fastest-expanding market in terms of percentage growth (up 32.5 per cent), followed by Asia (gaining 26.4 per cent) and South America (18.6 per cent higher).
Earlier in January, according to report from NAN, Dubai tourism reported ample influx of Chinese travelers in late January who traveled to Dubai to spend the Chinese spring festivals in the sunny Gulf Arab emirate.
In 2016, Dubai international airport received record 83.6 million passengers, defending its position as the world’s busiest civil aviation hub in relation to international passengers for the third consecutive year.
