Dubai Airport flying high

We are delighted to hear that one of our major Airports customers in the Middle East, Dubai International Airport, has reported record passenger numbers for the first six months of this year.

According to figures published by Dubai International, the airport welcomed some 27.9 million passengers between January and June this year – an increase of 13.7 per cent on the same period last year and the busiest six-month period in the airport’s history.

“We are on track to meet the annual projected traffic of 56.5 million passengers, which will bring us very close to Dubai International’s operational capacity of 60 million passengers per annum,” Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said in a statement.

Cavotec has worked closely with its partners and the airport for many years developing innovative in-ground aircraft servicing systems.

The most recent project on which Cavotec and its partners have worked on at Dubai International is the design, supply and installation of pre-conditioned air (PCAir System) and 400Hz electrical power Pop-Up pit systems for the Airport’s new Concourse 3. This new terminal is due to enter service during the first quarter of 2013 and, according to Griffiths, will increase the airport’s capacity to 75 million.
