American Airlines Opens 15 New Gates at DFW Airport

Terminal E satellite will support increased departures and an unprecedented number of connections

American Airlines opened 15 new gates in the Terminal E satellite at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), supporting more than 100 daily regional flights for American Eagle service.

The completely renovated space includes refreshed ticket counters and gate areas as well as new ramp lighting, moving walkways, elevators and escalators. Later this summer, American will also open a new Admirals Club in Terminal E, and the satellite terminal will be home to DFW’s only Whataburger.

American has been steadily adding DFW service this summer, and beginning in early June, the airline will operate more than 900 daily flights from the hub. That’s 100 more than last summer, including service to 23 new markets. They include: Dublin (DUB); Munich (MUC); Kalispell, Montana (FCA); Harlingen, Texas (HRL); Monterey, California (MRY); and Augusta, Georgia (AGS). Eighty-four existing markets will receive additional service from DFW, including Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (LGA). In total, customers have access to 234 nonstop destinations from DFW and the resulting American network can enable over 9,000 one-stop connections through DFW — more than any other airline hub in the world.

“American is the largest airline in the world and the largest carrier at DFW,” said Vasu Raja, Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning for American. “By adding 100 flights to our most profitable hub, we have the opportunity to connect more people to more destinations than ever before.”

Upcoming milestones include the opening of a Flagship Lounge featuring Flagship First Dining and a renovated Admirals Club in Terminal D, scheduled for May 16, as well as the opening of six mainline gates at DFW Terminal B in June.
