Dubai: Around 7.2 million passengers passed through Dubai International Airport in September, bringing traffic at the airport in the first nine months of 2018 to 67.5 million passengers.

The traffic in September was lower year-on-year (by 0.2 per cent) but as Eid Al Adha holidays fell in September 2017, it caused a spike in traffic at the time.

Top destinations by passenger traffic were India, followed by the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia, according to the report from operator Dubai Airports.
