Aircraft movements also continued to steadily grow by 8.4 per cent for the month of September, totaling10,057 movements compared to the same period last year; this is mainly due to Etihad's new services and the flight frequency increase by airlines operating at the Capital's airport.

Commenting on the traffic report, Eng.
