The Controlling Documents define how the Airport manages its financial affairs.
The 1968 Contract and Agreement established the Airport Board and provided the authority for the Board to act on behalf of the Cities of Dallas and Fort Worth in managing the Airport.
In 2010, the Owner Cities approved a Master Bond Ordinance, which amended and restated the Controlling Ordinances. This Master Bond Ordinance became effective on July 5, 2013.
The Airport operates pursuant to a hybrid Airlines Use Agreement, which became effective October 1, 2010.
