DUBAI, March 28 Passenger traffic at Dubai
International Airport, the world's busiest for international
traffic, climbed 8.8 percent from a year earlier to 6.95 million
people in February, the airport's operator said on Tuesday.
In the first two months of this year, traffic increased 9.3
percent to 14.99 million people. The growth was fuelled by
rising traffic with eastern Europe and Asia.
The airport, which accounts for only part of Dubai's air
freight, handled 192,704 tonnes of cargo in February, down 1.9
per cent from a year earlier. In the first two months of 2017,
freight increased 0.8 percent to 400,976 tonnes.
