Abu Dhabi Airports Feb traffic up 22%

Abu Dhabi Airports has announced that passenger traffic at Abu Dhabi International Airport increased by 21.5% in February 2015. A total of 1,715,540 passengers passed through Abu Dhabi International Airport during the month, compared with 1,411,881 in February 2014.

There were 12,852 aircraft movements in February 2015, which was a 15% increase over February 2014’s figure of 11,174. Cargo activity comprised 64,067 tonnes handled at the airport’s three terminals in February 2015, a 12.6% increase when compared to February 2014.

Commenting on the latest passenger figures, Eng. Ahmad Al Haddabi, Chief Operations Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The monthly traffic figures continue to match the long term forecasts of growth in passenger numbers, with airlines connecting a growing number of new destinations with Abu Dhabi International Airport. Against this backdrop, we are working tirelessly to upgrade our existing infrastructure to meet this sustained increase in demand and make sure that when passengers spend time at the airport, they enjoy the experience in a comfortable environment.  The latest phase of this upgrade was the recently announced Terminal 1 expansion which is already having a positive effect on passenger flows and efficiencies at the whole airport. We are implementing a full programme of further capacity enhancements both inside and outside the terminals, enabling the existing infrastructure to gear up ahead of the opening of the Midfield Terminal. ”

In February 2015, the top five routes from Abu Dhabi International Airport were Bangkok, London Heathrow, Manila, Doha and Jeddah. The top five routes accounted for 16% of all traffic last month.
