Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is huge and is usually abbreviated to DFW Airport. The airport is located 24 miles from the city of Fort Worth and 20 miles from Dallas. You can easily get there by car. Check in advance from which terminal the Fort Worth Departures of your airline departs and have you taken away by car. There is a curbside drop-off area where you can stand for a while. When picking up passengers, you can first wait at a cell lot before you drive to the terminal. You can do this after people walk away from a baggage claim. You can also be taken away with Uber or Taxi and then you are also directly in front of the terminal. You can also travel by public transport. There are several options with the train. DART rail service has the most generous times and is convenient for early Dallas Fort Worth Departures. Other options are with the TRE and TEXRail. There are six terminals, which are connected by the Skylink, a so-called “people mover” that zooms back and forth between the terminals at almost 60 kilometers per hour.
