DFW Airport Adds Nine More Gates; 165 Gates at DFW, With Room to Grow
New concourse built as part of Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP)
Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport today brought nine new gates into operation with 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 (TRIP), a multi-year, $2.3 billion capital improvement program to redefine the Airport’s four original terminals which first opened in 1974.
“The opening of the new gates is another important milestone in the TRIP program,” said Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport. “These new gates give DFW Airport additional capacity for hosting flights in Terminal B, and provide a great new space for customers to enjoy as they await their flights. To enhance the customer experience, we’ve also added a comfort zone seating area, charging stations, and of course, free WiFi.”
The new concourse at Terminal B offers an additional 20,000 square feet of gate space for customers. The entrance to the new concourse is adjacent to a Skylink people mover station for fast and efficient connections to concessions, retail and any gate at DFW.
TRIP is redefining DFW Airport for the next generation of air travel customers, with all new glass, floors and finishes, along with updated technology and renewed infrastructure. Under TRIP, renovation work continues in other parts of Terminal B, as well as in Terminals A and E.
With the addition of the nine gates in the new concourse at Terminal B, DFW now has a total of 165 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.
