TSA Screening for Kids:
TSA is required to screen everyone, regardless of age, in order to ensure the security of all travelers. Many Transportation Security Officers are parents themselves and understand travelers’ concern for their children. Security officers will approach children gently and treat them with respect. If a child becomes uncomfortable or upset, security officers will consult parents about the best way to relieve the child's concern. Learn more here...

Aquafina Junior Flyers Club at DFW Airport
The Aquafina Junior Flyers Club provides a kid-friendly play area for our littlest passengers! At each of these locations, you can let your little one work off some energy before your flight. The clubs’ playscapes include soft, foam areas with cars, planes and more that kids can crawl on. We ask that children be supervised by an adult at all times, so there’s even a seating area for our “big kid” passengers, too.

Terminal and Gate Locations include:
Terminal A – Gate A13
Terminal B – Gate B12
Terminal C – Gate C14

 
Terminal D Family-Friendly Facilities and Entertainment
Inside Terminal D you’ll find the McDonald’s Play area near Gate D33 and the DFW Children’s Play area near gate D10. Both areas provide a space specifically designed with your little one in mind.

Have a longer block of time between flights? Check out the DFW Airport walking path. The path, which is endorsed by the American Heart Association, was designed to provide you with the option to remain active while on the go. The path measures seven-tenths of a mile and is aligned with DFW Airport’s Art Program floor medallions.  The course includes informational signage between each of the twelve medallions and stretches between gates D6 and D40. Want to up the ante? Add in the two additional 55-foot high staircases that lead up to the Skylink stations.
