On Monday, Dubai Airports said in a statement that in the month of February the airport handled 3.5 million passengers as compared to 3.1 million in the year-ago period.
The company credited the increase to "a strong ramp-up of capacity" into the three regions by different carriers.

In the month of February, Cargo handled totaled 171,707 tons, up 26.7% from a year before.
