Dubai International Airport saw passenger traffic decline by one percent mostly due to the reduction in flight movements the fact that the Chinese New Year fell in February.
Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, revealed, “With passenger numbers nearing 8 million during the first month of the year, we’ve had a very encouraging start to 2018. What’s even more encouraging is that processes and technologies we have implemented recently are creating a smoother experience for our customers despite the high traffic volumes.”
