DFW Food, Shops, Services DISCUSSION

Will the airport allow me to go thru security to meet my son at the gate when he arrives? He is 13 and I am hesitant to let him try to find his way thru the airport at both Dallas and Atlanta.
I understand that your son departs DFW and arrives at ATL airports - both of which are large and I suggest that your son opens both sites to familiarize himself with the layout of the passenger terminals: he should open www.ifly.com/atl or ifly.com/dfw, and click on "Terminal Map" Found at the upper left side under "Quick Links". Arrival/Departure from Terminals, Concourses and gates are mainly determined by which airline he uses. His ticket will show the gate number. Also, the ifly site will show under the Quick Links "Flights & Airlines and their location. You are not allowed beyond the security checkpoint. Depending on the Airline, he will arrive either at the North or South terminal, or at Concourses T, A through E. Concourses A-E are connected in the center by the APM train. Concourse T can be reached by foot. You can meet him in the Atrium, in front of the Main Security checkpoint.
