American Airlines DFW Airport


Leaders from American, Envoy and DFW Airport celebrate the opening of the Terminal E satellite.

American Airlines, the world’s largest airline, opened 15 new gates in the Terminal E satellite at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), supporting more than 100 daily regional flights for American Eagle service.

The completely 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.

American has been steadily adding DFW service this summer, and beginning in early June, the airline will operate more than 900 daily flights from the hub. That’s 100 more than last summer, including service to 23 new markets. They include: Dublin (DUB); Munich (MUC); Kalispell, Montana (FCA); Harlingen, Texas (HRL); Monterey, California (MRY); and Augusta, Georgia (AGS). Eighty-four existing markets will receive additional service from DFW, including Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (LGA). In total, customers have access to 234 nonstop destinations from DFW and the resulting American network can enable over 9,000 one-stop connections through DFW — more than any other airline hub in the world.
