The DFW International Airport officially opened in 1974. It instantly became one of the World’s largest busiest airports. It covers more than 26.9 miles. It sits on 17, 207 acres of land. Now to give some perceptive, the Island of Manhattan with over 8 million people living on it is on only covers close to 4 more miles than does the DFW Airport.
In World rankings it is 4th in terms of operations and 8th in terms of passengers. It boosts approximately 158,375 passengers daily!
And today it opens new traffic lanes at the north and south entrances to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and at parking plazas.
Some lanes at the north and south parking plazas will be dedicated to drivers using credit cards or TollTags -- allowing them to enter and leave the plaza more quickly.
Drivers using TollTags can save $2 per day on parking and $1 when passing through the airport. To take advantage of the savings, though, TollTag users must activate DFW Airport expenditures on their NTTA TollTag online account.
There will still be lanes available for drivers paying cash. In the nearly 30 years it has been open the DFW International Airport has seen new terminals, new hotels and now a new faster way to get to where you want to go.
