Dubai International Airport, being the world’s busiest for international travel, announced its traffic totalling 11.9 million guests on Monday.

India Tops The List For Highest Number Of Passengers

With this update, the Dubai airport which is also known as DXB has not only surpassed its own yearly forecast but also gone ahead from its pre-pandemic levels of traffic.

The 2023 year witnessed a surge in passenger numbers in DXB, reaching 86.9 million passengers (86,994,365) making a very impressive year-on-year increase of 31.7%.

Interestingly, this was just under a percent higher than the passenger numbers recorded in 2019 (86.4 million).

These numbers seem to be driven by robust growth in the second half of the year, recording a total of 45.4 million guests.

December was the busiest month in the fourth quarter with 7.8 million guests.

During this quarter, the airport welcomed a total of 22.4 million guests hence reporting a year-on-year growth of 13.8 per cent compared to Q4 of last year. 

Further, Q3 reported the highest traffic since 2019 with 23 million guests while August, with 7.9 million guests, was the month with the highest traffic.

Presently, DXB is connected to 262 destinations across 104 countries through 102 international carriers, as per the  data for 2023.

When it comes to India, it has claimed the top spot among destination countries with traffic totalling 11.9 million guests.

It is followed by Saudi Arabia with 6.7 million guests and the U.K. with 5.9 million guests. 

Besides these, other countries’ markets of note include Pakistan (4.2 million), the U.S. (3.6 million), Russia (2.5 million), and Germany (2.5 million).

During 2023, DXB processed a total of 77.5 million bags hence making it the highest volume of bags managed during a calendar year at the airport.

DXB maintained its unmatched success rate of 99.8% despite a 24.6% year-on-year increase in baggage volume.

Notably, they had only 2.4 mishandled bags per 1,000 passengers.

Coming to the waiting time, more than 95% of guests experienced less than seven minutes of waiting time at the departure passport control.
