(DFW AIRPORT, Texas – Nov. 18, 2021) – Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport is ready to welcome more than 2.3 million customers between Nov. 18 and Nov. 29 as the travel industry continues to recover from impacts of COVID-19.

With the increase in air travel, customers are encouraged to take advantage of the following travel tips to ensure they travel confidently through DFW Airport.
