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

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.
