Over 41m passengers have passed through Dubai airport in first half of 2019

DXB

The Dubai International airport (DXB)  has welcomed 41.3 million passengers in the first half of 2019, maintaining its position as the world’s largest international airport by traffic volume.

A total of 41,277,749 customers travelled through DXB during the first half of 2019 (down 5.6 per cent).

Total passenger flights during the first six months of 2019 totalled 178,383, down 11.6per cent from last year, also due to the 45-day closure of the southern runway.

India remained DXB’s top destination country by passenger numbers, with traffic for the first half reaching 5.7 million customers – propelled mainly by top city destinations Mumbai and Delhi. Saudi Arabia was number two on the list with 3.1 million customers, followed closely by the United Kingdom with 2.8 million customers. Other destination countries of note include Pakistan (1.9 million customers), the U.S. (1.5 million), and China (1.2 million).

The top three cities were London (1.6 million customers), Mumbai (1.1 million) and Jeddah with just over 1 million.

The closure of one of DXB’s two runways between April 16th and May 30th for a complete rehabilitation programme reduced the airport’s capacity, contributing to a decline in traffic of 5.6per cent year on year.
