DUBAI Jan 4 Passenger traffic at Dubai
International Airport, the world's busiest for international
travel, rose 9.4 percent in November from a year earlier to 6.58
million people, the airport's operator said on Wednesday.
In the first 11 months of 2016, traffic grew 7.0 percent to
75.95 million people. The increase was partly due to growth in
flights to and from India, after carriers including Spice Jet,
Jet Airways and Air India launched new services and increased
capacity this year.
Dubai airport handled 234,743 tonnes of cargo in November,
an increase of 7.5 percent, while volume in the first 11 months
rose 3.3 percent to 2.36 million tonnes.
