25 Feb 2010

(MENAFN) A senior official at the Abu Dhabi Airport Company said that the Abu Dhabi International Airport has recorded a double-digit increase of 11.2 percent in passenger traffic in January this year, Gulf News reported.

Aircraft movements increased by 13.3 percent and cargo traffic saw a significant rebound, up 25.6 percent over the same period last year, he pointed out.

World class conferences and exhibitions in Abu Dhabi, such as the recent World Future Energy Summit, continue to support passenger loads along with the expanding network and frequencies of Etihad Airways and the new airlines ADAC welcomed in 2009.

Cargo loads showed significant increases during January, with a large volume of aid sent to Haiti credited with boosting this figure.

Continuing its top-ranking of 2009, London remained the airport’s busiest destination in January followed by Bangkok and Doha. Manila and Bahrain came in fourth and fifth places respectively.
