The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is also known as DFW, and it is the main airport for the Dallas and Fort Worth metroplex, in Texas. Both of these cities own this public airport that serves as the main hub for American Airlines, but Ameriflight and UPS Airlines also use it as their hub. Other near-by cities are Euless, Coppell, Grapevine and Irving. The airport had its dedication ceremony at the end of September 1973 when an Air France Concorde landed while being on its way to Paris, from Caracas.

American Eagle and American Airlines fly passengers to most destinations, compared to all the other airlines taking off from DFW. Some of the destinations include: Dubai and Abu Dhabi in UAE, Seoul in South Korea, and Sydney in Australia. If passengers want to fly domestic, they can reach cities like Cincinnati in Denver,  New York flying in LaGuardia airport, Chicago flying in O’Hare airport, or San Jose in California. Los Angeles seems to be the preferred destination for over 1.1 million passengers, and there are 5 airlines flying there daily. International travelers seem to prefer flying to London.

There are many passengers needing to exchange flights to reach their destination, and this process usually involves getting from one terminal to another. To make things easier, the Skylink was set in place. This train system is very fast, comes every 2 minutes, and takes passengers to all terminals on the secure side of the terminal. Additionally, a shuttle bus does the same thing, but travelers are dropped off on the non-secure side of the terminal.

To reach the airport from near-by cities, commuter are advised to jump on the Trinity Railway Express, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, and the Orange Line, at its terminus point. Those who prefer driving, have a series of highways that lead to the International Parkway. The Airport Freeway and IH 35 E are directly connected to the International Parkway.
