DUBAI — Dubai International Airport handled 20.7 million passengers in the first 10 months of the year, half of which passed through the major Gulf transit hub between July and October, operator Dubai Airports said on Monday, upwardly revising its outlook.

The state-owned Dubai Airports now expects the airport, home of airline Emirates, to see 28.7 million passengers this year, up from its most recent forecast of between 26 and 27 million.

The airport saw 6.7 million passengers in the third quarter, while cargo volumes in the first nine months increased 25.3% to 1.7 million tonnes amid a global freight boom.

Dubai Airports Chief Executive Paul Griffiths said the increase in passenger traffic had been encouraging, though cautioned the airport was a long way off pre-pandemic levels.

The airport handled 25.9 million passengers last year and 86.4 million in 2019, the year before the pandemic struck.
