DFW Airport Holiday Parking And Travel Update
DFW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, Texas (May 22, 2003) – DFW Airport kicked off its summer travel season today with its regular quick trip for passengers from entry plazas to terminals. “Level Orange” security measures require visual inspections and random searches of cars at entry plazas. Those procedures are taking 30 seconds to two minutes.
Terminal garage parking at all four terminals remains open and available, despite the closing of 1,200 one-hour spaces for heightened security. The Airport's Remote Parking is nearing capacity, so passengers are encouraged to check out Express Parking, which includes trunk-toterminal service, complimentary water and newspapers, at a price of $9 per day. More than 20,000 parking spaces remain available in all parking areas at DFW.
Passenger lines through the screening checkpoints ranged from zero to three minutes.
This is terrific news for holiday travelers getting a quick start to the Memorial Day Weekend.
The Airport will continue to monitor its parking lot capacity and Airport entry times. DFW continues to suggest passengers check www.dfwairport.com for the latest in travel and security updates.
