No shocker here. Dubai has recently been the hot spot for many foreigners including Nigerians.

From weddings – Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz, to vacations – Dr Sid and Simi Osomo, to shopping for top clients, Dubai has become a go-to-destination for all.

In the first quarter, Dubai International has globally become the busiest airport for international passengers, overtaking London’s Heathrow.

In a statement by Dubai Airports to The Wall Street Journal, the home of Emirates has handled 18.36 million international passengers. Heathrow revealed that 16 million people passed through its gates during the same time.

Dubai is not only the busiest of all 4 major aiports including Hong Kong and Paris, but also the fastest-growing in the first quarter.

But reports show Heathrow may take back the top spot, as Dubai plans an 80-day improvement project on its runways on the 1st of May, which may reduce the number of flights by at least 24%.

    Not surprised about that as Emirates is amongst the best if not the best airline in the world right now and the Dubai Airport in itself is a splendor to admire. Who wouldn’t rather transit there or visit the beautiful Dubai in itself.

    Some of your articles leave a lot to be desired. Dubai handles a lot of passengers not because it is the “to go to destination as you out it”. Tiwa Savage getting married there is of little relevance as well. The main reason is because Emirates airline fly to a lot of destinations and makes an ideal stopover point for passengers flying on long haul flights. Report news as it is and stop trying to twist things!

    Singapore airport is the most beautiful airport with 10 diffrent gardens in the airport. My favorite is the koi garden which is serene and beautiful and calm.
