Dallas Love Field DAL Airport Overview

Dallas Love Field DAL serves the City of Dallas in the State of Texas. It handles mostly domestic flights (Dallas/Fort Worth DWF Airport is the area's primary airport handling international & domestic flights). The Airport  is for many an affordable and convenient alternative, as evidenced by its growing passenger count.

DAL Airport is located within Dallas city limits on 8008 Cedar Springs Road  (intersecting with Mockingbird Road) - 7 miles NW of the downtown business district  (a 20-minute ride to the Convention Center).

Love Field's passenger count has soared from 9.4M passengers in 2014 to 14.5M in 2015. Dallas Love Field is used by domestic airlines offering direct and connecting flights.  It is primarily served by Southwest Airlines - founded and headquartered at Love Field.

Busiest time:  6am-8am, and 4pm-6pm.   TSA pre-check is available.

Dallas Love Field now has one integrated passenger terminal.

Current and future Airport developments:  Southwest Airlines, with 18 gates, runs currently 10 daily flights - squeezing in Delta's five flights across the space. Their legal battle resulted in a Court ruling in January 2016 in favor of Delta Air Lines - allowing it to operate at Love Field and using a Southwest gate.
While the first phase of the  'Love Field Modernization Program (LFMP), has been completed,  the second phase (LFMP II) started in Spring 2016 and include Parking Garage C, new cell phone lot and installation of parking guidance system.
