Dallas Fort Worth International Airport in Texas has completed all upgrades and enhancements for Terminal E as part of its US$2.7bn Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP).
A total of 36 passenger gates have been updated in Terminal E with new charging stations for customers’ personal electronics in gate and seating areas, long lasting durable terrazzo floors in the concourses, and energy-efficient lighting throughout. Passengers can also take advantage of free wi-fi to find the latest flight information, order food from concessionaires or find the desired shopping locations. Additionally, the renovation has updated four ticketing/security areas and 16 screening lanes.
Terminal E now features 21 new locations for concessions, including Tim Love’s Love Shack, Sonny Bryan’s BBQ, Texas Marketplace, 7-Eleven, Camille’s Ice Cream Bars, Dunkin’ Donuts, Auntie Anne’s and Chick-fil-A. The terminal also offers new retail options from XpresSpa, InMotion Entertainment, Marshall-Rousso, Texas Marketplace, Southwest News, Headphone Hub and two new Hudson locations.
Terminal E also received upgrades to its parking garage, increasing capacity from 4,036 spaces to 5,941 spaces. In addition, customers easily can discover the nearest available space with the help of an electronic parking guidance system in the new section of the Terminal E garage. Overhead LED beacons spotlight open parking spaces, and the system alerts customers to available parking on other levels of the upgraded facility. The new parking garage also includes eight electric vehicle charging stations.
Sean Donohue, CEO, DFW Airport, said, “This is another milestone for DFW Airport and another step toward our mission to transform travel and enhance the customer experience. Our customers are looking for convenience and amenities that make for a unique travel experience, and these TRIP renovations will evolve to meet their needs for years to come.”
Khaled Naja, executive vice president of Infrastructure and Development for DFW Airport, said, “More than 120 subcontractors and vendors contributed millions of hours to the Terminal E improvements, which created hundreds of jobs and contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the North Texas economy. TRIP’s impact reaches beyond DFW Airport and has positively affected local communities and small businesses throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area.”
