Dubai International Airport Ready For Busiest Winter Season Ever

Northern hemisphere is the season all airlines are looking out for to bring in the big bucks. Summer is the season that can make or break an airline’s balance sheet. However the Christmas winter surge, although not as big, is also an important seasonality. Airports too look forward to these seasonalities to make extra cash from retail and slot sales.

With the latest flight additions, which I’ll cover in the next paragraph, Dubai International Airport (DXB) will see up to 4,400 weekly flights at the height of the seasonality.

That translates to a significant increase on what was achieved just a year ago. The uptick in traffic is in the order of a +20%. This further strengthens and confirms Dubai’s position as the main aviation hub in the Gulf region.

We’ll soon have the overall 2023 numbers to talk about, but it looks like this will be an extremely positive year for the airport.
