Passenger traffic rise in APAC and Middle East

Passenger traffic in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East recorded growth in October at 1.1% and 5.2% respectively, according to Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific.

China’s passenger traffic grew modestly in October, reflecting signs of easing especially in the domestic sector. The three airports with the most passenger volume increase from last year were Chengdu (4.9%), Shenzhen (4.9%) and Guangzhou (3.3%).

In India, passenger traffic in both international and domestic segments improved, driven by the rising demand for travels during public holidays. The three airports with the most passenger volume increase from last year were Delhi (3.1%), Kolkata (5.8%) and Hyderabad (4.6%).

Elsewhere in Asia-Pacific, passenger traffic between Japan and South Korea was adversely affected by diplomatic tensions between the two countries. Nevertheless, Jeju and Seoul Gimpo managed to grow 12.5% and 7.7% respectively, supported by increased domestic tourists amid lower demand from Japan.

In the Middle East, passenger traffic growth gained momentum and grew at 5.2%. Dubai, the largest hub in the region, reported positive growth at 1.9%. Other high growth airports included Doha (16.1%) and Sharjah (13.9%).
