RAK airport passenger traffic up
Thursday, August 16, 2012
RAK International Airport continued to show significant growth in the second quarter achieving 78.3 per cent more passengers compared to the same quarter in the previous year.
While the passenger traffic in the first half increased 67.2 per cent this year. Similar growth was witnessed in terms of aircraft movements, cargo tonnage and retail.
"This growth is the result of a combination of carefully thought through factors such as collaborative teamwork, cohesive supply chain, attractive prices, product innovation and continuous energy and focus on our customer's needs and requirements," said Andrew Gower, CEO, RAK International Airport.
Winter 2012 is fast approaching and RAK International Airport expects to see a repetition of the previous winter performance as the Emirate is proving to be even more popular with Western Europeans as a maturing loyal customer base and the increased hotel demand and capacity comes on line.
"We have increased the capacity within the terminal buildings and have also upgraded the Duty Free and F&B offerings to ensure we can meet the requirements and needs of our passengers and airlines."
Industry trends reveal that the 3rd quarter is the most difficult one for most airports in terms of volume and business. However, RAK International Airport will utilize this time to plan and prepare for the busy winter ahead.
