Dubai International Airport has revealed it remains the world's busiest for international travel.
The Middle Eastern hub said it retained its top global spot for 2018 after serving the largest number of passengers for the fifth year in a row - despite falling short of its target.
Traffic at the major transit airport rose slightly to 89.15 million passengers, up just over one per cent on the number who used the airport in 2017, it said in a statement

It’s a great hub point for terrorists to get around to where they need to go.
If you ever wanna see how busy, go to this site:
It’s definitely a 24/7 airport - flight to and from Africa, Europe, Asia and the rest of the Middle East.
Abu Dhabi and Sharjah are also pretty busy too.
I wonder how many terrorist travel through there each day.
Flew through in early 2013. At the time it was the biggest, emptiest, airport I had ever been through. If you build it, they will...
Just how many airports does Dubai have for Domestic Travel?
I’ve flown in and out of Dubai several times...each time as a stopover to,or from,somewhere else.A very interesting city and a very big airport.
The Arabs in Dubai are crazy. Stay away.

One man has even been jailed for possession of three poppy seeds left over from a bread roll he ate at Heathrow Airport.
And you think >your< commute is bad?
“One man has even been jailed for possession of three poppy seeds left over from a bread roll he ate at Heathrow Airport.”
As a kid, my older buddy told me how drugs were made out of poppy seeds. Well, snuck into the spice rack and grabbed the poppy seeds.
I think I stopped at three seeds - I was starting to get a bit lightheaded! (Third grade or so!)
Yep. All kinds of additional flights from Africa to NYC where the travellers can make the journey to Upstate New York to cross to Kanaduh and get all dat free stuff!
In 2018, for the first time ever, we have accepted more immigrants than the US. Thank you so very much cuck Turd-owe!
North Dakota looks pretty good.

Not exactly true
Hartsfield Jackson continues to be the world’s busiest airport.
Atlanta is #1. LAX is #4. I believe that. LAX is always busy even on a Christmas afternoon.
Atlanta’s Jackson-Hartsfield International Airport total passengers for 2018:
Dubai’s 89.15 million—not even close.
100% of the flights at Dubai are international - that’s what the article is pointing out. Atlanta is largely domestic - though it feels like 105 million people are there on any given Friday afternoon. :)
As with any statistic...,
Atl has 52 million travelers about ten million more than Dubai
I dont care where theyre going
UAE is quite interesting. Each Emirate has its own government. Dubai led the way, but Abu Dhabi may be more elegant now. Only about 10% of the population are UAE citizens. There nearly 100 shopping malls, with some amazingly exotic. One reason that they may be blessed is that theyve allowed even welcomed international churches to meet in a rather large designated compound area that has multiple buildings. I also attended a totally normal international Christian gathering at a Marriott hotel.
I’ve been flying thru Atlanta every other week for the past several months, with a few more to go.
There are MANY terminals nicer than Atlanta!
