Abu Dhabi continues to see rise in passenger traffic

Abu Dhabi saw a 16 per cent increase in passenger traffic in November, the fifth consecutive month the emirate's main airport has recorded over a million users. That is according to new figures by the Abu Dhabi Airports Company, which has also confirmed that more than 42,000 tonnes of freight was handled throughout the month, a seven per cent rise compared to the same month in 2010. Harib Al Hameli, vice-president of operations at Abu Dhabi International Airport, commented: "Last November was one of the busiest months for Abu Dhabi International Airport, particularly with the many activities surrounding the F1 season taking place around the capital, along with the Hajj season, which drove passenger traffic to rise through the airport's diverse network." He added that the airport can look forward to sustaining its impressive growth and to "continue providing our passengers with award-winning customer service combined with high level of efficient and safe operations".
