American Airlines and Dallas Fort Worth Unveil Plans for Sixth Terminal

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport and American Airlines have unveiled plans to develop a sixth terminal.

The plans call for DFW to invest up to $3 to $3.5 billion in terminal improvements, including the construction of Terminal F and enhancements to Terminal C.

The identified site south of Terminal D provides significant flexibility for phasing in the number of gates for Terminal F, with a long-term projection of up to 24 gates.

DFW and American anticipate the investment to be financed by bonds and repaid through airlines rates and charges over the life of the bonds.

“This announcement sets the stage for DFW Airport’s next 50 years,” said Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport. “The new Terminal F and the expansion that could follow will provide the region with the growth it needs to compete with international business centers. The airport is growing faster than ever, and it needs to keep pace with the Dallas-Fort Worth economy to provide jobs and connections for businesses and families. We’re grateful to Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Board Chairman Bill Meadows for their leadership. I want to especially recognize American for its commitment to DFW Airport. We look forward to working together to deliver what will be an efficient, modern terminal with a state-of-the-art customer experience.”

Terminal F is expected to make use of the latest and most innovative technologies that will help to facilitate the movement of customers, maintain cost efficiencies for airlines and improve operational performance.

“We look forward to accommodating the continued growth of our city and the region through infrastructure improvements and expansion at DFW Airport,” said Fort Worth Mayor, Betsy Price. “We’re glad to see DFW’s anchor carrier, American Airlines, headquartered in Fort Worth, collaborate with the airport to take this area to new heights. This new terminal will further fuel economic development and job growth in our region.”

Design work for Terminal F is expected to begin immediately.
