Dubai sees 3.4% cargo increase

Dubai International Airport

Dubai International Airport has seen cargo volumes increase by 3.4 per cent to 2.5 million tonnes despite pure cargo operators moving to Dubai World Central.

In 2015, Dubai International welcomed new airlines including Air Canada to Toronto, Eurowings to Cologne, and China Southern to Wuhan. Emirates and flydubai also increased their network. Indian services were increased with daily Spice Jet flights from Kozhikode and Amritsar.

The airport’s operator, Dubai Airports chief executive officer, Paul Griffiths says: “It’s another banner year for Dubai International where we broke records, engaged and entertained our customers in new ways, and retained our position as the world’s number one international hub.”
