Who will be the 1 billionth passenger at Dubai airport?
At the end of 2018, Dubai airport is expected to welcome its 1 billionth passenger! It’s just the latest remarkable achievement for DXB since its opening in 1960, when the first plane to use the port was a Lebanese Airliner. Just a year later, 42,000 passengers had used the airport. The first asphalted runway was added in 1965.
By 1999 more than 10 million people had passed through and as we write, the figure stands at 957 million. So who will be the 1 billionth passenger? Could it be you?
