Dubai airport traffic drops by 1% in June due to Ramadan

In the first half of this year passenger traffic rose 5.8 per cent to 40.51 million people

Passenger traffic via Dubai International Airport, the world’s busiest international hub, dropped 1 per cent from a year ago to 5.86 million people in June because of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the airport’s operator said on Sunday.

Most of Ramadan, which normally reduces business travel in the region, occurred during the month of June this year.

In the first half of this year passenger traffic rose 5.8 per cent to 40.51 million people.

Cargo handled by Dubai International rose 3.9 per cent to 226,175 tonnes in June, and grew 3.8 per cent to 1.28 million tonnes in the first half of 2016.

Only some of Dubai’s air freight traffic passes through Dubai International as another facility, Dubai World Central, handles pure cargo operations.
