DFW to get its first scheduled A380 service in October



Quote:
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport CEO Sean Donohue announced Thursday that Emirates Airline will fly the world’s biggest passenger airplane, the Airbus A380, on the Dubai-D/FW route.
That solves the mystery of which airline was responsible for the airport’s decision to remodel Terminal D gates to handle the A380.
Emirates will begin flying the A380 here on Oct. 1.

Wonderful. DFW is not very easily accessible as of now.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) in the US have started a light rail passenger service to connect Dallas to the airport. An additional five miles have been added to link the airport to DART's belt line station.

Great. Now all we need is for our side to connect...

The connection is finally complete. Unfortunately, there are no express trains to the downtown core yet so the trip will take over 45 minutes.

Anyone else think it is sort of short sighted that the DART light rail only serves Terminal A and not the other terminals? If I for example was flying out of an airline other than American Airlines that would mean that I would be forced to take a shuttle to a different terminal just to check in luggage. At that point someone might as well decide to just drive to DFW as opposed to using public transit.

The Skylink is inside the secure area though so you would not be able to use the Skylink to check in luggage if you are flying with an airline that isn't American Airlines such as Lufthansa or Spirit. When I have used other airports that had a mass transit connection such as EWR, PHL, DCA, SFO, MUC, CPH, etc the airport terminals themselves were much more integrated with the mass transit line which made it easier to leave from the terminal to the train station.

I think DFW should seriously look at extending the rail line to connect to the other terminals (ie C, D, and E) and add an underground walkway connecting the DART station to Terminal B so that the DART rail is more connected to the airport. Or at the very least add a people mover system on the non-secure side connecting all of the terminals to the DART rail station and the parking lots/rental car center similar to SFO.

You're talking about funding issues. When money is available things will happen.

Well it's not like DFW is starved for cash at the moment although I understand if they want to hold off on adding more construction projects in the interim. If my memory is correct DFW receives a lot of money from having natural gas drilling rigs on-site in addition to landing fees.

Dallas Morning News: Mexican airline VivaAerobus plans D/FW flights from four cities

Quote:
By TERRY MAXON Staff Writer [email protected]
Published: 11 September 2014 08:51 PM
Updated: 11 September 2014 08:51 PM


Mexican airline VivaAerobus applied Thursday to begin service in December to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport from four Mexican cities: Guadalajara, Cancun, Monterrey and San Jose del Cabo.
The Monterrey-based airline said it would offer daily service to Monterrey and San Jose del Cabo and four flights a week to both Cancun and Guadalajara.
“The proposed services will generate significant benefits for the traveling and shipping public,” the airline said in its application to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
VivaAerobus, which has Aeroenlaces Nacionales S.A. de C.V. as its legal name, said it has already received approvals from Mexican regulators.
The carrier bills itself as “la aerolínea de bajo costo de México,” or the Mexican low-cost airline. Although it holds authority to serve a number of U.S. cities, it currently does not serve any. That will change later this year.

Qatar Airways recently upgraded its aircraft to 777-300ER to suit the demand! Who knows, maybe we'll see the A380 here.

Well Emirates is also flying the A380 to Dallas and Ethiad is also starting service in December, so I doubt Qatar will be flying the A380 anytime soon since the DFW-Middle East market is pretty saturated at this point.
