Latest ACI statistics point to few bright spots for international air passenger numbers

The Airports Council International data released on 17 November 2009 for international passenger movements at the world's top airports make relatively grim reading. For the 12 months ended August 2009 only three of the top 30 international airports, Dubai (DXB), Istanbul (IST) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL), reported positive growth.

All three airports are hubs for airlines that have been enjoying a relatively successful year. It remains to be seen what impact Dubai's current financial difficulties will have on traffic at the airport.
