Alias: Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport
Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport is located in the state of Texas, northwest of the city of Dallas (20 miles, 30 min by car) and northeast of the city of Fort Worth (24 miles, 40 min by car).
DFW airport transportation options. By own car there are several options for parking. You can park at the terminal, at express parking, valet or at the cell phone lots in case you are going to pick someone up. At Fort Worth Airport Arrivals you first wait for a cell phone ticket before. It is close by and in a few minutes you are in front of the terminal where people can walk out after a baggage claim. If you are taking someone away, there is also a curbside drop-off at the upper level of all terminals. You can stand here for a few minutes. For all Forth Worth Arrivals, if you want to rent a car, you must be taken to the rental car center via the lower level with a rental car shuttle bus. This short journey takes 10 minutes. There are also DFW departures every 10 to 15 minutes. There are many taxi companies available at all terminals. There is also an assistance with taking a taxi between the hours of 8 am and 12 am. Of course, public transport is also an option to travel to the airport. Early FDW Arrivals are available with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) rail service (3am arrival and 4am is the first departure). The train leaves at terminal A. You will therefore first have to travel to or from terminal A to the other terminals if your flight departs or arrives there. The TEXRail and TRE have comparable travel times and prices, but are slightly less flexible.
The airport has five terminals (and 1 satellite terminal) and seven runways. The terminals are connected by means of the DFW Skylink, an automated people mover. The Skylink stops twice per terminal and runs in a circuit, in both directions, past all terminals. The airport has two train / light rail stations, one for the train to Dallas and one for the train to Fort Worth. The train to Fort Worth departs from Terminal B and the train to Dallas departs from Terminal A.
A new terminal called Terminal F will open around 2025. This will yield about 24 extra gates.
Terminal A is used by American Airlines for domestic flights and the occasional international arrival or departure. Terminal B has the most gates with American Eagle as the largest user. Terminal C is used by American Airlines just like Terminal 1. Terminal D is for the international Dallas Airport arrivals used by more than 10 million people a year. British Airways, Aeromexico, Air Canada, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa and Korean Air have many arrivals at DFW Airport. Terminal E (plus satellite) is the most used by Delta Air Lines, US Airways and Spirit Airlines. Most DFW Arrivals are from Los Angeles and Chicago-O-Hare. International Fort Worth arrivals are mostly from Mexico City and London-Heathrow.
