USA. In a positive sign of faith in the recovery of air travel in the US and beyond, the Board of Dallas Fort Worth International Airport has approved plans for the renovation and expansion of one of its original terminals, Terminal C. It is one of several projects that are part of an overall US$2 billion investment at the airport, which will “transform travel” at the Texas hub.
“The goal is to transform Terminal C, which has stood in service at the airport since the early 1970s, into a modern terminal with the latest technologies and infrastructure,” said airport CEO Sean Donohue. “DFW is providing for the anticipated growth of our partner, American Airlines, while also elevating the customer experience to meet the needs of the modern traveller.”
Alongside an expansion of gate capacity in both Terminal C and Terminal A, the airport has several continuing or recently completed infrastructure projects including the High C gates renovation, the Terminal D South gates expansion, the opening of an Integrated Operations Center and the upgrade and renovations on runways and taxiways. These projects have supported more than 4,000 jobs in the past 18 months.
The renovations will be done in phases to minimise customer disruption and inconvenience. Expected to be completed in 2026, the projects will update around 850,000sq ft of terminal space.
