Dubai airport sees 40% drop in passenger traffic in 2021

Dubai International Airport, the world’s busiest airport for international travel, saw about 40% less passenger traffic in the first half of 2021, compared to previous year, its chief executive said Wednesday. 

The decline came as more contagious COVID-19 variants cut off the hub’s biggest source markets and continued to affect the global aviation industry, The Associated Press (AP) reported.

The airport held the title of the world’s busiest since it beat out London’s Heathrow seven years ago.
