Before Seven Years' Worth of Construction, DFW International Airport Introduces Its "Future"
By Robert Wilonsky, Thu., Dec. 2 2010 @ 3:38PM
Categories: Development, Probably Insignificant Aviation News
http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/unfa...orth_of_co.php

​No doubt you're well aware by now that Love Field Airport is undergoing its so-called modernization program. But Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport wants to make sure you're well aware of the fact it too is about to undergo, oh, seven years' worth of renovations beginning in 2011. Which is why today it launched its (re)defining your airport website, which is chock full o' infotainmentgraphacts intended to inform you about what's coming between now and 2018, which I hope to live to see.

The so-called Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program will, for the most part, affect the original terminals -- Terminals A, B, C and E -- which opened in '74. Says the release that just landed in the in-box: The redo "includes dramatic improvements for passenger services including ticketing, security and concessions. Plans also call for the replacement of terminal systems such as electrical, plumbing, ventilation and other infrastructure." Well, that's just sexy talk right there.

Love Field upgrade could exceed $1 billion
09:37 AM CDT on Friday, August 6, 2010

When it's all said and done, the price tag for rebuilding Dallas Love Field could top $1 billion, officials said Thursday.

That includes the $519 million project now under way to replace Love Field's terminal, $250 million for a hoped-for automatic people mover and the rest for new taxiways, aprons, drainage and other nonterminal improvements.

With extensive work to rebuild the airport's concrete aprons, drainage and other facilities, "it's going to be virtually a brand-new airport from that respect," said program manager Bill Manning of the Love Field Modernization Program.

Diego Rincón, an assistant director of the city's aviation department, said the program to replace Love Field's gates and rebuild its terminal "is just one component" of the program.

Still undecided is how, when and if the airport and city will build an automated people mover to connect Love Field to a planned Dallas Area Rapid Transit light-rail line just west of the airport.

But the city has begun projects to extend one taxiway and is reconstructing another taxiway, he said.

...

"All in all, with all those projects, you're looking at about $1 billion in infrastructure that are being planned at this airport over the next five to six years," he said.

"This is a very exciting project, one of the most exciting projects in the United States today," he said.

57 million passengers traveled through DFW in the past 12 months
http://blogs.star-telegram.com/sky_t...12-months.html

Over 57 million passengers traveled through Dallas/Fort Worth Airport in the last year, up 2.4 percent from the previous period.

The airport, which ended its fiscal year on Sept. 30, said its load factor was 80.8 percent and that airlines are carrying more passengers on fewer planes during its recently completed fiscal year 2011.

American Airlines, the largest carrier at DFW, had 49 million passengers, up 1.2 percent, although it cut its capacity by 1 percent, airport staff told board members at the airport’s monthly meeting on Thursday.

The airport’s low-cost carriers are also performing well with the segment up 26 percent for the year with the entrance of Virgin America and Spirit Airlines. Virgin America is reporting load factors of 72 percent while Spirit says its flights are 85.5 percent full, said Luis Perez, vice president of air service development at DFW.

International passengers grew by 3 percent to 5.5 million in fiscal year 2011. Recently, Qantas Airways announced it will increase its four-times-a-week service to Australia to daily service. Perez said Qantas’ load factor is about 92 percent, adding “they are doing extremely well.”

JetBlue will now serve 44 non-stop markets from Logan Airport.

Renowned international carrier launches daily service, DFW’s first passenger nonstop flight to the Middle East
http://www.dfwairport.com/pressroom/...ral_Flight.php

(DFW AIRPORT, TX – February 2, 2012) – The inaugural Emirates flight from Dubai to Dallas/Fort Worth arrived today at DFW International Airport, welcomed by a traditional “shower of affection” water cannon salute and a gathering of community leaders. Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, will operate nonstop daily service between DFW and Dubai (DXB) International Airport with uniquely equipped Boeing 777-200LR aircraft. The flight marks DFW’s first nonstop passenger flight to the Middle East.

"The new Emirates daily service to Dubai is a monumental development for DFW Airport, because it opens up a key region of the world for the citizens of Dallas/Fort Worth," said Jeffrey P. Fegan, CEO of DFW International Airport. "We are very pleased to have Emirates, one of the world's most highly regarded airlines, connecting DFW and Dubai, two of the world's top airport hubs."

Seems like Spirit Airlines is going to again be adding direct flights from DFW including service to Tampa and Toluca (which is notable as DFW will once again have direct flights to Mexico by an airline that is not American Airlines).

Spirit Airlines to add Tampa, Toluca/Mexico City to Dallas/Fort Worth schedule

Spirit Airlines had a little gift Thursday as it officially launched flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to New York LaGuardia, Atlanta and Orlando, Fla. -- an announcement of even more routes.

Spirit said it will begin service May 4 from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and Tampa, and has applied for permission to fly to Toluca, Mexico, about 40 miles or so west of Mexico City.

Guess who's the airport CEO in Tampa? That's right, former Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport executive vice president Joe Lopano.

"Dallas/Fort Worth is a popular destination for Tampa travelers, so we're delighted that Spirit is adding that city to its roster," Lopano said in Spirit's announcement. "Having a low-cost carrier like Spirit serving Dallas helps the entire Tampa Bay community by increasing competition and making airfares more affordable for more people."

"We welcome the addition of new Spirit Airlines service from DFW to Atlanta, Orlando and New York City," said Lopano's old boss, Dallas/Fort Worth Airport CEO Jeff Fegan, "and we are pleased to see even more flights coming later this spring."

"We are excited to be liberating even more customers from high fares as we continue to grow the number of cities we serve from Dallas/Fort Worth," said Spirit executive vice president and chief marketing officer Barry Biffle. "Our cheap base fares give consumers the opportunity to save money on travel, and our range of optional services for a fee allows customers the freedom to choose only the extras they value."

Spirit won't celebrate its first anniversary at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport until May 5. But it's already flying to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Chicago and Las Vegas, and added the three destinations Thursday. On March 22, it'll begin flights to Boston and Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz. On May 3, it begins service to Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Perhaps 14 passenger terminals is just too much for DFW Airport. Maybe the full buildout plan should be reduced to 10 passenger terminals?

D/FW Airport to get nap centers
By KAREN ROBINSON-JACOBS
Published: Feb 27, 2012 8:18 PM
http://www.dallasnews.com/business/h...ap-centers.ece



In less than a minute, entrepreneur Daniel Solomon repeated the same phrase three times: “We are not a hotel.”

The “we” is Minute Suites, a small collection of small rooms within airports — inside the security checkpoints — that allow weary travelers to nap, work, surf the Web or, in a few cases, sleep overnight.

A Minute Suites location is expected to open late this year in Terminal D, making Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport the third to host the sleep stations. But it will be the first such location with a shower and restroom.

D/FW also could be the first airport with two Minute Suites locations — a second is expected to open in 2014 as part of a major facelift in Terminal A.

So far, the Minute Suites at airports in Atlanta and Philadelphia have earned no enmity from the nearest airport hotels, in part because the snooze centers are small and 90 percent of sales come from the day traveler — not a significant hospitality segment.

That may change as Minute Suites takes flight. It hopes to expand in Atlanta and announced approval Monday to open in the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, a hub for Delta Air Lines.

For now, hotel insiders say, the hostel-like service shouldn’t make existing hotels hostile.

“If you’re using the nap center for what it’s intended to be used for, a 30-minute or hourlong place to recharge, could that [appeal to] a business traveler? Yes,” said Jan Freitag, a senior vice president at STR, a travel research firm.
