In a statement, Griffiths said: “It’s been steady journey of recovery for Dubai Airports and while we are still a long way from per-pandemic levels of traffic, we are encouraged to see this significant increase in the rate of passenger growth which continues to endorse our position as the world’s largest international airport. Our performance to date has led to a global recovery in all aspects of aviation activity and the growing ability of countries around the world to manage the global pandemic is allowing travel restrictions to be lifted. This has given travelers both the confidence and freedom to plan long-awaited journeys with ease.”
“Significant market developments such as the UK’s vaccination-based travel programme, the resumption on flights to several important destinations in Australasia and the relaxation of restrictions for travel between India and the USA have all contributed to an upward revision in our forecast for the year by an additional 2 million passengers to 28.7 million,” added Dubai Airports CEO.
