The event underlined the completion and success of the 40 ZOOM stores across the Dubai Metro network. ENOC also reiterated its commitment to further strengthen its partnership with RTA, and continue to work towards the same mission of enhancing convenience across Dubai’s transportation networks.
“Our partnership with RTA underscores our mandate to form strong collaborations towards achieving the growth goals outlined in the Dubai Strategic Plan.

Year-on-year, demand for air travel in June expanded by 6.2%. Capacity grew by a much more cautious 4.5% leaving load factors at 81%. While this appears to be a healthy growth rate, the growth trend since early 2012 has seen a slowdown. This is illustrated by isolating the February through June trend which shows 2% annualized growth. That is a major slowdown from the 8% annualized growth rate experienced from mid-2011 through to January 2012.
June air freight volumes recorded a 0.8% increase compared to the previous year. This brings seasonally adjusted June demand about 2.5% above the low reached in the fourth quarter of 2011. The global picture masks strong growth for Middle East airlines (17.9%) and the improvement in North American air freight demand.
