Residents of North Texas benefit daily from one of the nation's most significant transportation assets: Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
DFW is an economic dynamo that powers the area economy. It's a principal reason for the presence of 25 Fortune 500 companies in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Why have leaders at those companies chosen North Texas for their corporate headquarters? In a word: Access.
With its central location and status as the third-busiest airport in the United States, DFW provides business and pleasure travelers with myriad options. Carriers at DFW provide nonstop service to more than 150 domestic and international destinations, meaning that your ideal vacation spot, hometown or professional conference is likely just a convenient direct flight away from DFW.
Choose another city in another part of the country and the story changes. Three principal benefits underlie travel to or from DFW Airport:
Travel from, say, the West Coast to the East Coast — or vice versa — is much longer than a flight to the same destination from DFW.
In addition to higher cost, longer flights from a coastal origination point also translate into day-wasting exercises in endurance. Travelers can arrive fresher on shorter flights from DFW.
Fewer Weather Disruptions
Travelers to and from cities in the northern tier of states, and many along the Atlantic seaboard, often face delays and exasperation from winter storms that paralyze airport operations. That's rarely ever the case at DFW, where de-icing is most often seen on a TV monitor showing storm effects elsewhere across the country.
