There’s no doubt Dubai is a travel hub for business and tourism. That means the airport is busy all year round. Christmas, New Year, Summer, a random Tuesday afternoon in the middle of March, Dubai airport is usually always busy.

OAG’s Global Airline Schedules Data looked into the busiest airports in the world and guess who made the list…

That’s right! DXB was the second busiest global airport in 2023

The Airline capacity at DXB has increased by 5% compared to 2019 when it was the 4th busiest airport in the world

In 2023, it was the second busiest airport with 56,504,042 seats! That’s an unimaginable number and a massive milestone for this exceptional airport.

The number one spot went to Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) with 61 million seats! Tokyo International Airport (HND) was the third busiest airport in 2023 with 53 million seats and London Heathrow (LHR) was fourth with 49 million seats, as expected!

Although DXB had a very busy year, traffic was well-managed like always.
