Airports in Dallas-Fort Worth

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)


One of the busiest airports in the US, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is located between the two cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, and together with Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport is the primary gateway to Texas.

A huge facility, the five terminals of Dallas-Fort Worth cover 18,076 acres (7,315ha) and process nearly 57 million passengers each year on flights to 144 cities within the US and nearly 50 international destinations. The airport's large size makes it confusing to navigate for first-time travellers, but high-speed trains are quick and convenient for transferring between terminals. The airport is slick and modern, and with hundreds of shops and restaurants to choose from as well as artistic touches like commissioned exhibitions and a pretty sculpture garden. There's never a need to be bored there!


The airport is situated 18 miles (29km) from downtown Dallas and 24 miles (39km) from Fort Worth.

Getting to the city

Charter buses, limousines and Dallas Area Rapid Transit public buses are available at the airport; schedules and information are available from the Visitor Information Centres in the baggage claim areas. A free shuttle service links all the terminals to the CenterPort/DFW Trinity Railway Express Station about 20 minutes away, from where there are regular departures to Dallas Union Station and Fort Worth.


GMT -6 (GMT -5 from March to November).
