DXB passenger decrease in Africa and Middle East

Reading Time: 1 minute

Emirates_B777-300_DXBWhile overall passenger rosters at Dubai International have increased this year, there has been a clear decrease in travelers to and from Africa and areas of the Middle East.  The political unrest and sometimes unpredictable violence occurring in these areas is more than likely to blame, as travel has visibly increased from other regions.  The most dramatic increases were from other Gulf Coast countries and the Indian subcontinent.

Even with decreases in certain areas, airport officials anticipate exceeding last year’s travel records at the world’s fourth busiest airport.  Chief Executive of DXB, Paul Griffiths, says they expect to “exceed 50 million passengers this year,” as travel has been up 7.2% in the first quarter alone.
