Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (IATA: DFW, ICAO: KDFW, FAA LID: DFW) is the primary international airport serving the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex area in the U.S. state of Texas. It is the largest hub for American Airlines, which is headquartered near the airport. 2016 was a record year for DFW, as the airport served 65,670,697 passengers.
It is the third busiest airport in the world by aircraft movements and the eleventh busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic in 2016. It is the busiest airport in the state of Texas by both passenger enplanements and by aircraft movements (takeoffs and landings). It is the tenth busiest international gateway in the United States and busiest in Texas. With nearly 900 daily flights, American Airlines at DFW is the second largest airline hub in the world and the United States, only behind Delta’s Atlanta hub.
DFW is larger than the island of Manhattan and is the second largest in acreage (17,207 (6,963 hectares or 26.9 square miles)) among U.S. airports, after Denver.
Located roughly halfway between the major cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, DFW spills across portions of Dallas and Tarrant counties, and includes portions of the cities of Irving, Euless, Grapevine and Coppell. It has its own post office ZIP code and United States Postal Service city designation (“DFW Airport, TX”), as well as its own police, fire protection and emergency medical services. The members of the airport’s board of directors are appointed by the “owner cities” of Dallas and Fort Worth, with a non-voting member chosen from the airport’s four neighboring cities on a rotating basis.
Airports Council International (ACI) named DFW Airport the best (as of 2017) large airport in North America for passenger satisfaction. DFW Airport earned top marks among airports with more than 40 million passengers, beating out the likes of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Denver International Airport.
As of October 2017, DFW Airport has service to 214 destinations, including 56 international and 158 domestic destinations within the U.S. In surpassing 200 destinations, DFW joined a small group of airports worldwide with that distinction, including Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Charles de Gaulle Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Dubai International Airport, Frankfurt Airport, Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Heathrow, Istanbul, Munich Airport, Copenhagen Kastrup and Oslo Gardermoen
