Dubai International retains top spot

DXB remains world's number one airport for international passengers for the fourth consecutive year with annual traffic reaching 88.2 million passengers in 2017

Dubai International (DXB) retained its position as the world's number one airport for international passengers for the fourth consecutive year with annual traffic reaching 88.2 million passengers in 2017, operator Dubai Airports said on Monday.

In 2017, even as passenger traffic grew at its slowest pace of 5.5 per cent in nine years, most traffic performance metrics underpinned Dubai's positioning as a preferred global aviation and transport hub.

Performance metrics include excellent infrastructure, better airline connectivity, easy-to-approach destinations in East and West, flow of international and regional tourists, and visa-on-arrival access to Chinese and Russian tourists.
