Dallas Fort Worth International Airport

The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is the primary international airport serving the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan in Texas, United States. It is the largest airport in Texas and the second largest airport in the United States, just behind the Denver International Airport in Colorado. It is the third busiest airport in the world by aircraft movements, the ninth in the world by passenger traffic, and is the tenth busiest international gateway in the United States next to airports located in New York and Miami, among others.
The airport is located in the cities of Irving, Euless, Grapevine, and Coppell, and between the major cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, although the airport is "owned" by the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. It is operated by the DFW Airport Board, and is a hub for American Airlines, Ameriflight, and UPS Airlines.
The airport has a total land area of 17,207 acres, serving 202 destinations, including 55 international and 147 domestic routes. Among these destinations, the busiest local routes include Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, and New York, while the busiest international routes include London, Cancun, Mexico City, Tokyo, Frankfurt, and many others.
Upon reaching 200+ destinations, the airport has joined and was inducted to a select group of airports worldwide with that distinction, including Frankfurt Am Main Airport, Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport, Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Munich Airport, and Dubai International Airport.
Because of the airport's huge size, it has provided room for terminals and extensions to accommodate more passengers and airline services. The airport now has five terminals aptly named terminals A-E, and has plans on building the sixth terminal to be named terminal F. American Airlines, the biggest airline in the world in 2013, occupy most of the terminals. American Airlines have services from terminals A, C, D, while its contender, American Eagle, has flights in terminals B and D. All the other airlines, including Aeromexico Connect, Air Canada Express, Alaska Airlines, Avianca El Salvador, British Airways, Emirates, Etihad, Frontier, JetBlue, KLM, Korean Air, Lufthansa, and many others, occupy terminals D and E. Other American giants such as United Airlines, United Express, US Airways, Spirit Airlines, and Delta Airlines are scattered in terminals D and E, along with other international airlines.
