Emirates topped 10 million passengers this summer

Dubai International – Emirates' hub – is currently the world’s busiest international airport

  • Emirates has revealed it carried more than 10 million passengers on nearly 35,000 flights to 130 destinations this summer.

  • More than 3.8 million travellers across the network checked-in online via and the Emirates App

  • DXB’s Terminal 3 served more than 500,000 travellers who used its 22 self-service check-in kiosks and 38 baggage drop facilities 

  • Emirates’ home check-in services, which are complimentary for first-class passengers departing Dubai,  were used by more than 11,000 travellers, who could skip airport check-in queues and proceed straight to immigration

With millions of Emirates customers arriving, departing and transiting through Dubai International Airport (DXB) each month, the airline ensured smooth operations at its hub with additional resources deployed throughout the airport ecosystem.

Having anticipated the strong return of travel demand, Emirates worked closely with its airport partners to operate as scheduled, minimising travel disruptions and taking customers to their planned holidays across the world throughout summer.

Travellers benefited from the airline’s investments in services and digital initiatives to reduce wait-times at the airport and facilitate a smooth flow for customers to safely and efficiently get to where they are going.

The airline also ramped up operations to serve customer demand during this busy period, reinstating daily services to London Stansted, and increasing flights to 33 cities on popular routes across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, as well as to favourite holiday spots like the Seychelles, the Maldives, Mexico and Miami.

In June 2022, Emirates added Tel Aviv to its global network, and in July it added a third daily flight to London Gatwick to serve travellers impacted by capacity cuts at Heathrow.


Emirates also deployed its A380, the world’s largest commercial jet, to serve high customer demand at more than 30 cities around its network.

Emirates continues to rebuild its network and capacity as travel restrictions ease. It is currently operating at 74% of its pre-pandemic network/capacity and plans to increase that to 80% by year end.
