Bahrain Airport Served Less Passengers in June

Bahrain International Airport has released its June performance figures, which revealed a 1.2 percent fall in passenger traffic, while the freight unit grew 6.9 percent year-on-year.

During the month under review, 579,511 travellers passed through the gateway, which also saw 7,103 aircraft movements, down 8.9 percent over June 2016.

Meanwhile, 18,843 tonnes of cargo were transported from the hub during the reviewed month.

Despite the minor drop in passenger numbers, the airport is paving its way towards increasing the passenger handling capability by the construction of new terminal building, alongside with opening an improved overflow car park.
