(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Dubai International, the world's second busiest international hub, is set to surpass the traffic forecast for the year, as the airport recorded another month of high growth this November.

With traffic in November reaching 5,337,544, up 9.5% compared to 4,875,003 in the corresponding period in 2012, the airport has registered 12 consecutive months of traffic exceeding 5 million passengers

The year to date (November) totalled 60.384 million passengers compared with 52.363 million recorded during the same period last year, an increase of 15.3%, said the monthly traffic report issued by Dubai Airports

In November, Western Europe recorded the largest increase in total passenger numbers (97,637 passengers), followed by the Indian subcontinent (56,732), the GCC (56,711), Australasia (51,151), and Africa (46,731)

The strongest markets in terms of percentage growth were Eastern Europe (56.5%) driven by flydubai's services to 15 destinations in 10 countries across Europe, followed by Australasia (33.4%) thanks to the launch of Qantas' services to Dubai earlier this year, and Russia and CIS (18.8%) spurred by an increase in demand on routes to the region, it said

Aircraft movements in November increased by 6% to 31,525 from 29,749 recorded during the same month in 2012

The year to date movements totalled 337,121, up 7.6% compared to 313,300 movements between January and November 2012

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said "The growth in passenger traffic has been nothing short of phenomenal this year with a monthly average of 5.4 million customers and we are set to exceed our target of 65.4 million for the year

Dubai International's total capacity increased to 75 million passengers per year when Concourse A was opened in January 2013 and this will be followed by the opening of Concourse D in early 2015 we continue to focus on improving our facilities and customer service as our infrastructure development programme keeps pace with our healthy traffic growth.
