DXB surging ahead

Although we’re growing at an explosive pace, Dubai is still a very small city by world standards. Population is somewhere around 1.4 million for the emirate of Dubai.

But our position in the world of travel and trade is way beyond that reality.

For example, Dubai International Airport is now listed as the world’s tenth biggest airport by international traffic, behind Bangkok and ahead of Seoul, South Korea.

For the first half of 2007 the airport reported that it handled 16.2 million passengers and had a total of 127,000 flights. All this with only one runway!

The second runway and new terminals are close to completion, so we can expect even more records in the second half of the year.
