The number of passengers handled by DXB during the last three months of 2022 reached pre-pandemic norms. Dubai’s growth was far superior to the rest of the globe. Why? We’re all conscious of how the staff at Dubai Airport worked together to manage the massive crowds that were swarming the airport. Travellers benefited greatly from the new airport amenities, such as smart gates, biometric systems, and digital visa services. By taking the numbers into account, we can also determine the amount of staff that was hired to serve the visitors quickly and without interruption.

All these factors have to be taken into consideration when we celebrate the ranking of Dubai International Airport’s first rank in the list.

Other countries that trail behind are London at the 2nd rank with Amsterdam, Paris and Istanbul following with their respective order. Dubai has achieved 5th rank in the busiest airport list of 2022 curated by ACI again. We will be back soon with rankings for 2023.
