Dubai Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, however, the latest report recorded a low passenger traffic in this airport. 86.4 million people traveled from Dubai airport in 2019, which is 3.1% less than the number of passengers in 2018.
Aviation experts have expressed concern that the passenger traffic will decrease at the airport in 2020, in view of the Coronavirus. There are several reasons for the decline in passenger numbers, which include helicopter closures, the Indian Jet Airways crash and the ban on the flight of Boeing 737 Max planes.
In 2020, the Dubai airport could potentially lose 32.2 million passengers. Many countries have imposed travel restrictions on their citizens in view of the virus spreading worldwide, due to which the flow of more passengers will be suspended and this could lead to a severe deficit for the airport administration.
