ROMFORD, England, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent figures from Dubai Airports have revealed that passenger numbers to Dubai International have continued to increase, with the airport being expected to handle 98.5 million customers by 2020, say Beat the Brochure.
According to new findings released by Dubai Airports as part of their ten year traffic forecast for Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum, passenger numbers will rise by 7.2% and 6.7% respectively from next year, which outperforms the global average of 5% which is good news for travellers as well as travel providers, say Beat the Brochure ( http://www.beatthebrochure.com/).
Daniel Ox of Beat The Brochure says: "The news from Dubai Airports makes for very positive reading for travellers heading to Dubai as it shows that more and more people are choosing to travel to Dubai - in fact Dubai Airports predict that 75 million passengers will have passed through the airport by 2015. It follows previously positive passenger growth numbers in 2009, when the amount of international passengers grew by 9.1% on the previous year. This new announcement reveals that more and more holidaymakers are opting to book holidays in Dubai ( http://www.beatthebrochure.com/holidays/Arabian_Gulf/Dubai/default.asp), which is just fantastic news."
Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International (http://www.dwc.ae/dwc.html) is currently being used as a cargo hub, and is set to begin receiving passengers from 2012, but while Dubai Airports have predicted that 75 million passengers will pass through both of these airports, they have even bigger predictions for the years ahead.
Ox continues: "Dubai Airports' predictions for airport growth are really quite astounding, and while they are expecting a huge number of travellers to pass through both airports in the next four years, they have also projected that the number of passengers will reach 98.5 million by 2020. Obviously this is a rather large growth that's expected in Dubai over the coming years, but other destinations are predicted to do well too, as travellers gear up for the summer season by booking other breaks, such as holidays in Turkey (http://www.beatthebrochure.com/holidays/Turkey/default.asp) and Paris."
