Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport has unveiled a total of ten new gates and a new concourse extension at Terminal B.
The new gates, B30-B39, will be used to serve American Eagle regional jet flights. The concourse and new gates are part of DFW´s ongoing terminal renewal and improvement program, a multi-year, USD2.3bn capital improvement program to redefine the Airport´s four original terminals which first opened in 1974.
“These new gates give DFW Airport additional capacity for hosting flights in Terminal B, and a beautiful new space for customers to enjoy as they await their flights,” said Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport. “We´ve also added some very nice customer touches in the new concourse, including a comfort zone seating area, charging stations, and of course, our fast and free WiFi.”
With the addition of the ten gates in the new concourse at Terminal B, DFW now has a total of 164 gates across its five terminals. It is the first new terminal concourse to open at DFW since the grand opening of Terminal D in July of 2005.
Celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2014, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is the world´s third busiest, hosting 1,850 flights a day and serving 60 million customers a year.
