DFW AIRPORT, Texas – Aug. 9, 2021 – The DFW Airport Board approved during its August meeting plans for the renovation and expansion of one of the original terminals, Terminal C, reimagining how travel can be transformed at Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport.
The estimated $2 billion in projects are the latest example of the ongoing investment in both the Airport and the region, not only updating the nearly 50-year-old facility but also providing expanded gate capacity in both Terminal C and Terminal A to address future growth and continue a commitment to an evolving enhanced customer experience.
“The goal is to transform Terminal C, which has stood in service at the Airport since the early 70s, into a modern terminal with the latest technologies and infrastructure,” said DFW 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 traveler.”
DFW has several on-going or recently completed infrastructure projects including the High C gates renovation, the Terminal D South gates expansion, the opening of a state-of-the-art 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 minimize customer disruption and inconvenience. Expected to be completed in 2026, the projects will update approximately 850,000 square feet of terminal space.
