Airlines DFW Airport
Just last year, and as all airports were recovering from the drought of passengers that the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and flight ban caused, the DFW welcomed over 62 million visitors! In the years leading up to the pandemic, this airport was raking up between 65 and 75 million visitors every year. This colossal number of flyers are accommodated in five different terminals, having a total of over 180 gates between them.
The establishment is large and it serves an even larger area. And with such an influx of visitors, you should not be surprised to learn that the airport operates nearly 1,800 flights on a daily basis! These flights are operated by 40 major airlines, most of which are international. In fact, the terminals of the airport itself are divided and categorized based on the airlines and/or flights that operate in them. For instance, Terminal D is purely for international flights.
The airline that is most commonly known to be based at DFW is American airlines. That is due to the fact that two full terminals (terminals A and C) solely serve this airline, while Terminal B serves American Eagle, which is a branch of American Airlines. What some may not know is that the DFW is also a hub for other airlines, such as Ameriflight, Southern Airways Express, and UPS Airlines.
|American Airlines||A8-A39, B1-B49, C2-C39, D17-D40,E35-E38|
|Spirit Airlines||E18, E31-E33|
|Sun Country Airlines||D6-D16|
Other than American Airlines and American Eagle, other American airlines operate flights at DFW. And since Terminal E is dedicated to domestic flights that are not related to American Airlines or American Eagle, you will mostly be finding these airlines operating from this terminal.
Domestically, the most common domestic destination is actually Los Angeles, California, as nearly a million people have traveled there since June of last year from the DFW. Second place is a close tie between Las Vegas, Nevada, and Atlanta, Georgia. Each with nearly 900,000 passengers.
The DFW is connected to almost 260 destinations all over the world. And thus, the international airlines also play a major role at operating many flights from the airport. As we previously discussed, the terminal that deals with international flights is Terminal D. However, Terminal E also serves flights to Canada, other than the domestic flights. The busiest international route from the DFW has been Cancun, Mexico for some times now with over 800,000 passengers a year. Second place goes to London, Heathrow, in the UK with nearly 745,000.
Some of the international airlines operating these busy routes and others include:
