Dubai International Airport has been the world’s busiest international airport for the past decade.

Dubai International Airport’s passenger traffic has surpassed pre-pandemic levels, with 41.6 million people using the transit hub during the first six months of this year.

Dubai’s main gateway saw passenger traffic surge 49 percent in the first half of the year compared with the same period in 2022, slightly exceeding traffic in 2019, Dubai Airports said on Tuesday.

Dubai reopened to tourism in mid-2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when many other destinations were closed and has rebounded strongly since the revival of international travel.

Dubai welcomed more than 14 million international tourists in 2022, almost double the number of the previous year, according to the Department of Economy and Tourism.
