Numbers were achieved while staying committed to the highest levels of service excellence, says CEO
Abu Dhabi Airports has released its passenger traffic report for the first half of 2022.
The report revealed traffic of 6,299,725 passengers across Abu Dhabi International, Al Ain International, Al Bateen Executive, Delma and Sir Bani Yas Island airports combined during the first half of 2022.
During that time, the emirate’s five airports recorded 94,538 flights – a clear demonstration of substantial network and passenger traffic growth.
Abu Dhabi Airports chief executive officer Shareef Hashim Al Hashmi said: "Our passenger traffic results for this year’s first half represent another stride forward for Abu Dhabi Airports and the wider industry.
"While 2021 was a successful year, the target for 2022 was always to build on that momentum by catering to higher numbers of travellers and expanding our airline network with partners while staying committed to the highest levels of service excellence."
At Abu Dhabi International (AUH) alone, the Emirate’s largest airport, the number of scheduled passenger flights increased by 94% compared to the first half of 2021. AUH today is connected to 101 destinations served by 23 airlines, compared to 76 destinations by 19 airlines during the same period last year.
"The resumption of regional and global markets and successful efforts of airlines to accommodate demands safely have been instrumental in achieving these figures," Al Hashmi said, adding, "Looking ahead, our aim is to continue building on this success throughout the second half of 2022."
