Abu Dhabi Airport traffic shows 10.1% growth

altMay 24 - Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has announced its monthly traffic report for the Abu Dhabi International Airport, stating double-digit growth figures. The airport recorded a passenger traffic increase of 10.1 per cent, up to 866,475, in April. This is in spite of cancellation of flights to European countries in the aftermath of the volcanic ash cloud incident.

Aircraft movement went up by 11.1 per cent in April as compared to the same month in 2009. Cargo movement through the airport also increased with tonnage handled up by 21.3 per cent. Meanwhile, the top five city destinations were London, Doha, Bangkok, Manila and Jeddah while USA was the fastest growing country destination for the month, with a 160 per cent increase in passenger traffic over the same period in 2009. "In spite of the extraordinary circumstances caused by the volcanic ash cloud that spread from Iceland across Europe during several days in April and thereby grounding numerous flights to and from the continent, Abu Dhabi International Airport continued to record double-digit growth, which is a great result. The increases illustrate the strong fundamentals of our economy and the strength of our tourism offering in Abu Dhabi. ADAC will remain focused on enhancing the facilities and services we offer to our passengers, and to attracting new airlines to our airport hub,” said Ahmed Al Haddabi, Senior Vice President of Airport Operations, ADAC.
