Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) today announced Abu Dhabi International Airport’s traffic figures for the month of November – the fifth consecutive month that the airport has welcomed over one million passengers.
Abu Dhabi International Airport saw a 16% surge in passenger traffic in November compared to the same month last year. Cargo traffic was also on the rise, with over 42,000 tonnes of freight handled throughout the month, recording a 7% increase over the same period in 2010.
Commenting on the airport’s performance, Harib Al Hameli, Vice President Operations, Abu Dhabi International Airport, stated: “Last November was one of the busiest months for Abu Dhabi International Airport, particularly with the many activities surrounding the F1 season taking place around the capital, along with the Hajj season, which drove passenger traffic to rise through the airport’s diverse network. We look forward to sustaining our dynamic growth, and to continue providing our passengers with award-winning customer service combined with high level of efficient and safe operations.”
Doha, London Heathrow, Bangkok, Manila and Manama were the top five routes for November, collectively claiming 20% of the total passenger traffic for the month.
