Dallas Fort Worth DFW Airport Terminal Map
Main Terminal / Concourses at Dallas Fort Worth DFW Airport
The passenger terminal complex at Dallas-Fort Worth International consists of five terminals - TA through TE - 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.
Getting around: 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 Minute Suites).
1. To get from one terminal to the other you have two options.
(a) The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D1-22 & D23-40, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates A9-A21& A22-A39, B1-B19 & B20-B39, C12-C15 & C24-C27, and E2-15 & E16-E38.
(b) Alternatively, free 'Terminal Link' blue & green accessible vans transfer passengers outside the baggage claim of each terminal, running every 10 minutes, 5am-midnight, thereafter call 972-574-5465. Nearest pick-up/drop-off areas at corresponding terminals are beween: A15-16 & A25-26; B12-13 & B27-28; C12-15 & C24-27; D17 & D24; E9-13 & E18-21.
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. However, you can also use the walkway between A, B, C & D gates (E gates are not connected by walkway).
A Federal inspections services (FIS) corridor allows for international passenger arrivals at Terminal B aboard American Eagle. This corridor leads directly to the Customs facility adjacent Terminal D.
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.
A lane for passengers without checked bags is now in service.
* DFW now implements an Automated Passport Control System (ATS) to 'significantly improve immigration processing', enabling passengers to enter passport information on 54 kiosks with touch-screens to register their return. Eligible to use these kiosks are the U.S., Canada, & countries with visa waiver agreements with the U.S., including the U.K, The Netherlands, South Korea, Australia and Spain.
