Passenger traffic at Dubai International Airport, the world's busiest for international travel, rose 9.4% in November from a year earlier to 6.58mn people, the airport's operator said on Wednesday.
In the first 11 months of 2016, traffic grew 7.0% to 75.95mn people. The increase was partly due to growth in flights to and from India, after carriers including Spice Jet, Jet Airways and Air India launched new services and increased capacity this year.
Dubai airport handled 234,743 tonnes of cargo in November, an increase of 7.5%, while volume in the first 11 months rose 3.3% to 2.36mn tonnes.
