New Delhi: The world’s busiest airport for international travel has seen a decrease in the number of passengers. Dubai International Airport is considered to be the busiest airport for international travel. Compared to the same period last year, the number of passengers decreased by about 40 percent in the first half of 2021.
Let us tell you that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dubai Airport gave this information on Wednesday. The reduction in passenger numbers is due to the outbreak of more dangerous variants of Kovid-19, which is still affecting the global aviation sector. However, CEO Paul Griffiths remains optimistic about this important transit point of the east-west air route as UAE authorities gradually reopen Dubai’s major route to the Indian subcontinent and the UK Is.
Griffiths said, “10.6 million passengers passed through the airport in the last six months, which is still very positive. I think the end of this year will be satisfactory with the easing of restrictions.”
