American Airlines has opened 15 new gates in the Terminal E satellite at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), USA, supporting more than 100 daily regional flights for the American Eagle service.
The renovated space includes refreshed ticket counters and gate areas as well as new ramp lighting, moving walkways, elevators and escalators. Later this summer, American will also open a new Admirals Club in Terminal E, and the satellite terminal will be home to DFW’s only Whataburger.
“DFW is a premier hub for the airline and our new gates are just the latest investment,” said Cedric Rockamore, vice president of DFW Hub Operations for American. “The Terminal E satellite is the result of hard work and collaboration from across the airline and the airport, and everyone should be proud of what we’ve accomplished together.”
“American is the largest airline in the world and the largest carrier at DFW,” said Vasu Raja, vice president of Network and Schedule Planning for American. “By adding 100 flights to our most profitable hub, we have the opportunity to connect more people to more destinations than ever before. By adding service to new destinations and increasing service to some of our customers’ favorite spots, we’re building a connecting network that can get them anywhere.”
