Leaving behind world’s international airports, Dubai airport has retained the top position among international airport by being the busiest for international passengers in 2017. This is the fourth consecutive time when the Dubai international airport has retained its top position. According to a report, 88.2 million travellers were recorded who travelled to and through Dubai airport.
Dubai has made international headlines for its hospitality and infrastructure growth and emerging a popular tourist destination, or if one can say, one of the best tourist destination in the world. As per a data, the maximum number of visitors are Indians who continue to lead the position with 12.1 million passengers arriving at Dubai airport last year. While Indians lead the charts, British passengers followed at the second place with 6.5 million passengers and Saudis taking the third position with 6.4 million passengers.
According to a report revealing the data doing countrywide classification of passengers showed that the number of Russian passengers rose by 28% to 1.34 million. This was followed by Chinese whose figures increased by 19.4% to 2.2 million. One of the important reason for the Dubai airport to hit a maximum number of passengers and emerge as the top airport in the world is the easing of some of the norms including that visa on arrival.
