DFW Once Again Celebrates Status as World’s Second-Busiest Airport
ACI Announces DFW is Once Again Second Busiest by Passenger Volume
Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) once again holds the title of the world’s second-busiest commercial airport, with 73.4 million passengers passing through the mega-hub in 2022, according to Airports Council International (ACI). DFW’s total passenger traffic last year represents an increase of 17 percent compared with 2021.
“The sustained growth of DFW’s passenger traffic continues to demonstrate our economic impact to the growth of the Dallas Fort Worth region and our place as a top global hub,” said Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport. “As we continue to transform DFW with improvements to technology, infrastructure and the overall passenger experience, we anticipate more years of growth ahead thanks to our outstanding team and partners.”
DFW has experienced impressive growth over the past three years thanks to a customer-first approach that guides every decision the Airport makes. In 2022, DFW invested in safety-enhancing and time-saving end-around taxiways, as well as new gates in Terminal C that prioritize customer safety, experience and much more. These investments, and a focus on customer satisfaction, are part of why DFW saw capacity added by airline partners and a total of 265 destinations around the world in 2022.
DFW is proud to have also been named the best large airport for customer experience in North America by ACI, according to customers, last month. As the busy summer season approaches, DFW is ready and excited for the continued growth in travel.
