Passenger numbers at Dubai International continued their rapid ascent in May as the airport welcomed 6.2 million customers, up 23.2 per cent from the same period last year, according to the monthly traffic report issued by operator Dubai Airports today. Passenger numbers rose 23.2 per cent to 6,267,640 compared to the 5,086,910 handled in May 2014 when the airport was reduced to one runway while a billion-dollar refurbishment programme was conducted over an 80-day period. During the first five months of 2015, Dubai International welcomed 32,384,620 passengers, compared to 29,608,364 passengers during the same period last year, an increase of 9.4 per cent. Eastern Europe continued to be the fastest growing region in May, up 85.4 per cent, driven mainly by flydubai’s new services to Slovakia, Bosnia, Bulgaria and Croatia, as well as Emirates’ service to Hungary and Transavia airline’s service to Bulgaria
