DFW International Airport Offers Array of Amenities
When DFW Airport Station opens Monday, Aug. 18, it will be located at Terminal A. The horseshoe-shaped, 30-gate terminal at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport offers amenities, services, restaurants and shops for travelers who find themselves with some time on their hands.
Travelers who skipped breakfast have no shortage of options, including Einstein Bros. Bagels at Gate A11, Au Bon Pain at Gate 38, and Dunkin' Donuts at gates A13 and A28. Numerous Starbucks are on hand to provide a caffeine fix at gates A29, A33 or A37.
Full-service restaurants include TGI Fridays at Gate A13, Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen at Gate A24 and Pappasito's Cantina at Gate A28. A number of other eateries are spread throughout the terminal.
Passengers who want to polish their look before the big meeting or presentation should find gates A14 or A35, where Shoe Shine by Goodfellows will add that final luster. Additional amenities include a FedEx drop box at Gate A13 and free wired Internet (and plentiful power outlets) at gates A10 and A28.
The airport's other four terminals showcase a similar assortment of options, and are easily accessible by transferring from DFW Airport Station to one of the airport's internal transportation modes:
Terminals A, B, C and E offer complimentary DFW Airport Travel Lounges, featuring lounge and work station seating, and power outlets at every seat. The DFW Airport Travel Lounge at Terminal D also offers large flat-screen televisions. DFW Airport Travel Lounges are located near gates A29; B8 and B28; C8 and C27; and E8.
- Passengers taking American Airlines flights from other terminals can check their bags at Terminal A and then take Skylink, the airport's people-mover, which is located inside the terminal beyond airport security.
- Passengers using other air carriers who need to check bags should take their bags with them and use Terminal Link, the airport's inter-terminal bus shuttle, which stops near the rail station.
- Passengers with carry-on luggage only can go through security and take Skylink to their terminals.
- Both Skylink and Terminal Link are free services. The trip to the airport on DART Rail will be covered by a regular local two-hour pass, which costs $2.50.
