New DFW International Terminal D

Recommended Posts

Here are some photos of the new International Terminal D which recently opened at DFW. From the DFW website :

The new International Terminal D is a two million-square foot terminal capable of handling 32,000 passengers daily or 11.7 million passengers annually. The terminal features 99 ticketing positions and a federal inspection facility capable of processing 2,800 passengers per hour. The concession areas consist of 100,000 square feet and feature upscale shopping and fine dining. An arrivals canopy roof shields pedestrians from inclement weather as they enter and exit the terminal. A Grand Hyatt Hotel has been integrated in the terminal and a new garage will have plenty of room for parking guests.

The new eight-level parking garage has 8,100 parking spaces and use a Smart Technology System that lets guests know which floors are full. Air-conditioned skybridges with moving walkways and elevators makes the walk from the garage to the terminal easy and comfortable.

DFW's new high-speed airport train is now open. Skylink unites existing Terminals A, B, C and E, and will extend to the new International Terminal D and future Terminal F. The Airport's goal is to provide its guests with a 30 minute or less passenger connection time. Skylink's average wait time is 2 minutes and average passenger ride time is 5 minutes. The train's bi-directional, elevated, dual guideway spans approximately 26,000 linear feet and is elevated an average of 50 feet above ground. The trains reach speeds up to 35 miles per hour. Beginning opening day, the trains will have the capacity to handle 5,000 passengers per hour, per direction. The system will ultimately handle 8,500 passengers per hour, per direction.

There are two spacious Skylink stations in each terminal, located at the north and south ends of the terminals. The stations feature passenger information systems, and escalators and elevators for easy access to the station platforms.

More than 30 local, national and international artists were selected to design the works featured throughout the new terminal and Skylink stations. In addition to the commissioned artwork inside the terminals, the DFW Sculpture Garden features four sculptures (on rotating loan from the Nasher Sculpture Center) and is located just outside the Terminal D parking garage on the arrivals level.

Two of DFW's retail innovations, La Bodega Winery, the world's first airport winery, and DFW TravelMart, the world's first airport-based convenience store, have new locations in Terminal D. The terminal will also feature upscale shopping choices from well-known North Texas-based vendors such as Fossil, Bachendorf's Jewelry and MallaSadi Men's Boutique.
