Taking FlightGetting Around
Whether you are a family of four traveling to Mexico for vacation, a business traveler headed to Chicago for the day, or a busy corporate executive flying private, take-offs and landings are easy here. Dallas is home to the world’s largest global airline—American Airlines—and the U.S.’s largest domestic carrier—Southwest Airlines—as well as three full-service general aviation airports serving private and executive clients.
Situated between Dallas and Fort Worth is DFW International Airport. DFW International Airport is the highest-capacity commercial airport in the world, connecting the area to the entire planet. The airport offers travelers a high-frequency schedule and access to any major city in the continental United States in less than four hours. More than a dozen new international routes have been added in the last two years, and more are on the way. Plus, Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART) Orange Line connects to DFW International Airport.
Dallas Love Field is a convenient general-use airport, located just seven miles from downtown Dallas, that is home to low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines. Alaska Airlines also provides service out of Love Field. The airport recently completed a $519 million renovation, including a centralized terminal with 20 gates, a new lobby, and an expanded baggage claim area. Together, these things mean a big future for this little airport.
Corporate jets most often operate out of Addison Airport, in North Dallas; McKinney National Airport, 30 miles north of Dallas; or Dallas Executive Airport, just south of downtown. These airports offer state-of-the-art infrastructure and amenities and first-class service to their clients. Also settled in the Dallas Region is the Fort Worth Alliance Airport, the world’s first major industrial airport and home to the Amazon Air Hub.
