Dubai International continued to record strong growth figures last month, with 5,337,544 passengers using the airport in November, up 9.5 per cent on the same period last year.

The figure means the Middle Eastern hub has recorded 12 consecutive months of traffic exceeding five million passengers, and is now set to surpass its 2013 traffic forecast of 65.4 million passengers.

Dubai International currently stands second in the list of the world’s busiest airports by international traffic, having overtaken Paris Charles de Gaulle earlier this year, and is predicted to take the number 1 spot from Heathrow by 2015.

By contrast Heathrow’s total passenger traffic during November was 5,411,400, up by just 0.6 per cent on the previous year.

Still not a patch on Singapore Changi, while Hong Kong is also preferable to Dubai.

I decline to travel between Australia and Europe via the Middle East. Via Asia (SIN, HKG, MNL, ICN, NRT, KIX) is far more interesting and friendly.
