DFW International Airport is committed to serving the disabled community.  DFW International Airport has produced this site to assist travelers with disabilities traveling to or through DFW International Airport.  It is hoped that this web site will aid in making your travel planning and visit to the DFW area more relaxing. Please feel free to contact the office of the ADA Coordinator and let us know what you think of the information provided, and feel free to suggest other ways we can make your visit a more pleasant experience.

To view all accessibility information, please click the links below or scroll down the page.
Designated disabled permit parking is located in signed areas in all parking lots. In the Terminal garages disabled parking is on the same levels as the entrances to the buildings where arrivals and departures are located on level with the upper and lower roadways. Disabled permit parking in the one hour areas may be utilized for long term parking as long as the vehicle displays a disabled parking tag or license plate. Disabled parking is available in all parking garages, express and remote lots. Due to TSA and height restrictions garages at some terminals are not van accessible. Express and remote lots are served by accessible shuttle busses which are equipped with wheelchair lifts. DFW Airport Valet parking is also available at the terminals.

Complete parking information can be found by clicking here.

Accessible parking guide can be found here.

DFW offers visual paging in addition to audible paging for our guest with hearing impairments. Visual paging is available by contacting the Airport Operations Center at 972 973 3112.

Public TTY Telephones
DFW has TTY telephones throughout the terminals located at the public pay telephone banks. Signage is located throughout the terminals to assist in locating pay telephones.

All restrooms located throughout the terminals are fully accessible to travelers with disabilities. Unisex toilet rooms equipped for the disabled are also available throughout the terminals and are located adjacent to the accessible men’s and women’s toilet rooms. Look for the internationally recognized disabled symbol.

Wheelchair service is offered through your air carrier upon request. To ensure availability and timely service, it is strongly recommended that this service be reserved in advance.  However, wheelchair assistance may also be requested at airline ticket counters.

Security Restrictions
Security measures at DFW restrict public access beyond passenger screening points to ticketed passengers only.  However, the individual airline may grant permission for persons with special needs to be accompanied by a health care assistant or guardian. If someone wishes to accompany an elderly or disabled person to or from an aircraft gate, they must obtain permission from the airline.
If traveling through DFW Airport and you must make connections between airlines or terminals the DFW Skylink train offers the shortest way to make connections. Skylink trains are fully accessible. Each train provides wheelchair spaces as well as seating for our guests with mobility impairments. Each Skylink station is served by elevators as well as escalators. The Skylink train system is located on the secure side of all terminals eliminating the need to pass through security screening for connecting passengers.
The Consolidated Rental Car facility is accessed by shuttle bus from all terminals. All shuttle busses are equipped with wheelchair ramps. Also all shuttle busses have the ability to kneel or lower for easier access. Please ask the driver to “kneel” the bus.
If a specially equipped car is required please contact your rental car provider to make arrangements. Click here for complete rental car information.
