Dallas-Fort Worth International is the eighth most active airport in the world and the largest in the State of Texas. The airport is located 18 miles from the center of Dallas and 24 miles from Fort Worth. In 1927, the leaders in Dallas asked their counterparts in Forth Worth if they would be interested in a joint airport situated between the two cities. Fort Worth rejected the idea. The two communities built their own airports, Love Field and Meacham Field.

In the 1960s, the FAA refused to allocate funds for two airports in the area. Love Field was unable to support the overwhelming demand for air travel and did not have enough land for expansion. The two cities renewed their airport discussions and selected a new site that was midway between their metropolitan areas. Construction on Dallas-Fort Worth International began in 1969. The facility opened in 1973. The occasion was marked by the maiden landing of the Concorde in the United States. Full commercial service began in 1974.

There are 28,000 parking spaces at the airport. Valet parking is available at each terminal, and express parking is provided at the northern and southern ends of the DFW. The airport also has remote and terminal parking facilities. Dallas-Fort Worth International has five terminals that are connected by a high-speed people mover. The layout of the terminals was designed to minimize the time required to access the amenities, departure gates and baggage claim. The travel time between the furthest points on Skylink is less than ten minutes. DFW also has a complimentary shuttle located outside baggage claim that transports travelers between the terminals. The vans depart every ten minutes.

The semi-circular shaped terminals have 152 gates to serve the more than 56.9 million passengers who travel through the airport each year. The airport design is capable of expanding to 13 terminals and 260 gates. The commercial airfield has airline clubs, children's play areas, Internet access and electronic device charging stations. Personal services include a barber and hair salon. There are traveler's aid stations, banking facilities and a business center. The consolidated rental car facility is located on the airport property.

The airport straddles parts of four suburban towns between the two major metropolitan areas of Dallas and Fort Worth. Because the airport is so large, the U.S. Postal Service designated the facility a city with its own zip code and postal facility.
