The world’s busiest international airport picked up the award at last week's World Route Development Forum in Durban.
"We are thrilled to win this award and it’s doubly satisfying to know that we were selected by our customers – the airlines – while competing with some of the world’s best international airports," said Anita Mehra, vice president of communications & business development at Dubai Airports.
"At Dubai Airports we believe that the best way to serve our airlines is to offer our passengers the best experience possible by continually enhancing the quality of our products and services.
"Our win here is a reaffirmation of that belief, and a result of our close relationship with the 100 plus airlines at DXB."
Created in 1997 to recognise excellence in airport marketing, the annual Routes awards provide airlines with the chance to choose which airport they think provides the best overall marketing services.
