Dubai Airports CEO confident of growth plans

19 May 2009

The financial crisis has so far had no impact on Dubai's airport growth plans, Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said today at the Dubai Airshow. The Middle East aviation sector can 'speak with an air of confidence' as it is the only region in the world to record growth in the aviation sector since the onset of the economic crisis last year, he said. In Dubai, passenger traffic rose 2.3% in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period last year, and recorded 6.5% growth in April.
