Dubai retains title as world’s busiest international airport in December – The National

Dubai International Airport in December retained its position as the world’s busiest for international passengers, overtaking major hubs such as London Heathrow, as passenger traffic surged during the peak holiday travel period.

The monthly rankings by aviation consultancy OAG were calculated using airlines’ international seat capacity and international flight frequency in December 2021, compared with the same month in 2019 before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dubai held on to the top spot with 3.54 million seats, about one million more than the next busiest airport, London Heathrow, OAG said in its monthly World’s Busiest Airports report.
