Dubai International Airport (DXB) has started its winter season on a strong note, with seven international carriers launching operations to nine destinations between October and November.

The addition of new services and increased frequencies are set to boost total weekly flights up to 4,400 (one-way), marking a 20 per cent surge from the previous winter season.

DXB, named the world's busiest international hub for both passengers and connectivity by the Airports Council International (ACI), welcomed Aegean Airlines, Air Canada, Batik Air, Eurowings, Transavia, Virgin Atlantic and TUS Airways.

"The new services and increased frequencies to our winter schedule reaffirms our commitment to growing DXB as a major hub and further positioning the airport as a dynamic and competitive player in the global aviation landscape," said Rob Whitehouse, VP Research at Dubai Airports.

"Thanks to collaborative efforts with our partners, we’re excited to attract more visitors to Dubai while also introducing new destinations and increasing connectivity to more cities."
