DFW International Airport Statement Regarding American Airlines Parent Company AMR Filing for Bankruptcy Protection
Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport released the following statement today:
“While the situation is fluid due to AMR’s bankruptcy filing, operations are business as usual at DFW,” said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW International Airport. “We stand ready to assist our partners at American Airlines, and they know they have our full support in their reorganization effort. American Airlines has been and continues to be a highly valued partner for DFW and for the entire Dallas/Fort Worth region. We at DFW are confident that our Airport’s very low cost structure and our excellent operating environment will represent a solid foundation for future American Airlines operations here.”
“For now, we anticipate that passenger levels and Airport revenues will remain strong even during the American Airlines reorganization proceedings,” said Fegan. “We will be carefully monitoring the situation as it works its way through the process, and we have the ability to manage operations to fluctuating demands.”
DFW International Airport will continue with plans for airport renovations under the Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP) and other capital improvement projects that are currently underway. As always, DFW Airport assesses its plans in light of new circumstances that emerge, and will continue to do so.
