A Whole New Experience: Terminal F

The Future is Big and Bright

A whole new experience is on the horizon for DFW Airport.

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and American Airlines have announced plans to develop a sixth terminal, providing a long-term commitment from the airline and opportunities for businesses and customers in the fastest growing region in the United States.

Design work for Terminal F will begin immediately.

DFW will explore several different options for the layout of the Terminal F site and expect the details to be finalized as part of a new airlines lease agreement that is being negotiated. DFW and American anticipate the investment to be financed by bonds and repaid through airlines rates and charges over the life of the bonds.

The plans call for DFW to invest up to $3.0 to $3.5 billion in terminal improvements, including the construction of Terminal F and enhancements to Terminal C. The identified site south of Terminal D provides significant flexibility for phasing in the number of gates for Terminal F, with a long-term projection of up to 24 gates, as demand for additional facilities is warranted. 


The design of Terminal F is expected to accommodate a changing aviation industry as DFW utilizes innovative technologies to facilitate the movement of customers, maintain cost efficiencies for airlines and improve operational performance.


Terminal C is one of the Airport’s original terminals and opened in 1974. DFW and American plan to significantly improve the customer experience at Terminal C, bringing it in line with Terminals A, B and E, on which renovations were completed in 2018. Those renovations included redesigned check-in areas, larger security checkpoints, expanded concessions spaces, and improved lighting and flooring.

The future is bright for DFW, and the Airport is focused on delivering a great experience for customers and providing economic opportunities for the Dallas Fort Worth region.
