Dubai International Airport ranked busiest airport for international travel

 

It is the sixth year for Dubai International Airport will hold the crown as the world's busiest for international travel, reports AP.

The airport said on Wednesday that it maintained its title despite closing one of its runways for repairs last year.

The airport saw 86.4 million passengers in 2019, 6 million more than second-place Heathrow Airport in London of UK. That's down 3% from 2018, which saw 89.1 million passengers at the massive airport.

The airport blamed the weaker numbers in part on a 45-day closure of its southern runway, the bankruptcy of India's Jet Airways and the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max.
