Annual traffic results for 2010 showed Dubai International Airport edging past Frankfurt Airport as the world’ fourth-busiest airport for international traffic.
Just 7,000 passengers separated the two bustling hubs for the whole year. Dubai’s traffic growth is being led by Emirates as the airline continues to grow its fleet by at least one wide-body aircraft per month.
The pattern continued into the New Year with Dubai International seeing a 10 percent rise in traffic over January of 2010. The airport welcomed over 4.25 million passengers for the month.
