(MENAFN ) According to a statement released by Dubai International Airport, the airport handled over 3.6 million passengers in February of this year compared to 2.9 million in the corresponding period of last year , Gulf News reported.

The statement said that the strong growth in February follows the record monthly passenger traffic of over 3.8 million in January, bringing the year-to-date passenger throughput to 7,501,848, up 19.7 percent over the same period in 2009.

Last month, the airport saw a growth of 17 percent over January 2009 figures. While demand for regional carriers, which is forecast to increase by 15.2 per cent, is spurring recovery in the region, low yields on hub traffic will weigh on profitability.
