The passenger terminal complex at Dallas-Fort Worth International consists of five terminals - TA through TE (TD is the international terminal) - divided by their respective 
International Parkways:  TA, TC & TE are to the east, TB & T3 are to the west.  All Terminals are connected by the high-speed Skylink train, running inside security and taking an average of 5 mins.  Each of the five terminals, together with their parking facility, form a half circle, with the parking area facing the one-way roads of the Inernational Parkway in the center.  Terminals A & B face each other - connected by a walkway, as well as terminals C & D (Terminal D has actually a square layout). Terminal E is south of Terminal C, but is not connected by walkway to the other terminals.
    Passenger Paging telephone numbers: for TA & TC: 972-4252480;  for TB, TD & TE: 972-973-3112.
    Free AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots are located throughout the Terminal.
    Locations are stated by letters & numbers:  A9 = Terminal A, area 9.

    To get from one terminal to the other you have two options:
- The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area
of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D, between D11 & D20, and between D24 & D34, and connects to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes an average of 5 mins for transfer. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates
A13 & A16, and A29 & A34;  B9 & B12, and B28 & B31; C8 & C12 and C27 & C32;  D11 & D20, and D24 & D34; E8 & E11 and E31 & E32.
- Alternatively, free 'Terminal Link' blue & green accessible vans transfer passengers every 10 mins outside of the terminals' baggage claim, 5am-midnight, thereafter call 972-574-5465.
- Nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; B12-13 & B27-28; C12-15 & C24-27; D17 & D24; E9-13 & E18-21.
   Passengers arriving at the new DFW Airport Station:  Walk to Terminal A (a 3-minute walk) - enter the ticketing hall if departing from TA; if not - you have the following options to connect to one of the other terminals:
- Non-American Airline passengers with only carry-on bags may use a multi-airline kiosk (in elevator vestibule at TA) to check in for their flight.
- Passengers of airlines other than American with bags to check in may use the Terminal Link shuttle bus outside to get to their connecting terminal.
    To rest /refresh between flights, DFW now offers at Terminal D, near gate D23, nine 'Minute Suites' with shower facilities (& Terminal A will have soon a second Minute Suites).
    International Arrivals/ Transfers: Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports, you need to go through passport check,    retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. The Skylink at post-security gets you to your connecting flight - or use the walkway between A, B, C & D gates (E gates are not connected by walkway).
The three new gates in the corridor connecting Terminals D & B are swing gates, enabling international passengers to proceed directly upstairs to the Customs Hall via newly opened 2-level corridor between TD & TB.
    Aside from Global Entry & TSA Pre-Check - the following three additions have been speeding up the process considerably:
- Currently over 70 percent of international arrivals (US citizens & green-card holders, Canadians, citizens of Visa waiver countries),  will use the 51 APC's (automated passport control) processing machines).
'carry-on bags only' passengers may use the'Carry E-Z' green lines in the International Arrivals Hall.
- CBP baggage claim expanded to 13 positions, and the Terminal D22 checkpoint is adding 2 more lanes.
TSA Checkpoint Locations:  A10, A21, B9, B30, C10, C21, C30, D18, D22, D30, E16, E18, E33. 
TSA Pre-Check Locations: A21, C20, D22, D30, E18.
CLEAR at E33 - CLEAR members bypass long lines going straight to screening.
    * United Passengers:  Due to ongoing renovation work, the United Airlines has been relocated to a different section of TE through mid-2017. During this time United's check-in is near the E20 terminal entrance, and its flights are depart from/ arriving at gates E25–E30. Allow for extra time for check-in, baggage dro-off, security screening and walk to gate.
