Passenger traffic through Dubai International Airport, the world's busiest for international travel, rose 6.1% from a year earlier to a record 7.73mn people in August, the airport's operator said on Monday.
It cited additional capacity and new services introduced by airlines including locally based Emirates and flydubai.
In the first eight months of this year, traffic expanded 6.9% to 55.85mn passengers.
Dubai International handled 201,100 tonnes of freight in August, down 3.1% from a year ago; year-to-date cargo was 1.69mn tonnes, up 2.4%.
Only some of Dubai's air freight passes through Dubai International as another facility, Dubai World Central, handles pure cargo operations.
