The monthly passenger traffic, breached the seven-million mark six times during the year, Dubai Airports added.

 

Earlier last year, at the IATA World Passenger Forum in Dubai, Dubai Airports CEO, Paul Griffiths, said, he expected 85 million passengers for 2016.

 
The airport has also retained its title as the world’s number one airport for international passengers.

 

During 2016, a number of new airlines, including Nepal Airlines Corporation and Rossiya, launched services to DXB, while 11 new passenger destinations were added to the hub, as a result of network expansion by flydubai, Emirates and other international carriers.
