Dubai Airport Sets Traffic Record

Dubai International Airport expects to become the world’s busiest within this decade, overtaking Beijing and Atlanta, spurred on by the expansion of Emirates airline.

The airport, which overtook London Heathrow, sees passenger traffic climbing to 83 million this year from 78 million last year and expects 90 million people using the facility next year, Paul Griffiths, the chief executive officer of Dubai Airports, told Bloomberg TV in an interview.
