Abu Dhabi Airports reported a 4.8% increase in passenger traffic at Abu Dhabi International Airport for April 2016, compared to 2015.

A total of 1,960,946 people travelled through the airport last month, exceeding April 2015’s figure of 1,871,337. The top-five routes were London Heathrow, Doha, Bangkok, Bombay and Jeddah.

Several destinations saw significant growth in passenger traffic with the UK beating its April 2015 figures by 25.6% last month, and Australia recording a 20.6% increase in the same period.

“Abu Dhabi is growing, both as a global tourism destination and strategic transit hub and this is clear from the fact that we are still seeing a year-on-year increase in traveller numbers. Several destinations in particular have seen a rise in passenger traffic including India, Germany, Thailand, the UK and Italy,” said Mohammed Al Katheeri, acting chief operations officer at Abu Dhabi Airports.
