Dubai International cargo traffic rise 31.7% in May

Updated:2010-06-24 16:01:10

Dubai Airports has reported double-digit year-on-year growth for cargo traffic at Dubai International for the month of May.

Cargo volumes grew 31.7 percent to 195,221 tonnes compared to 148,207 tonnes during the same month in 2009 spurred by increased economic activity in Asia and other regional markets. Year-to-date cargo volumes total 917,280 tonnes compared to 722,549 tonnes during the same period in 2009, up 27 percent.

Dubai International is the world's fifth busiest for cargo traffic.

The first phase of Dubai World Central (DWC) - Al Maktoum International opens for cargo operations on June 27. Phase 1 includes a single A380 compatible runway; a cargo terminal building with a capacity of 250,000 tonnes expandable to 600,000 tonnes per annum and a 92-metre air traffic control tower.

DWC will eventually become the world's largest airport with a capacity of 12 million tonnes of cargo per year.
