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. Note that all amenities and services (food, drink, stores...) are located in the boarding area near their respective gates.
 - 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.
DFW is making considerable improvements & changes for some time to come - see YouTube site at https://www.youtube.com/user/DFWIntlAirport/videos.
- Apple TV now provides flight, parking and traffic information.

Inter-terminal transportation via free Skylink light rail train operating 24/7, arriving every 2 minutes and taking on average 5 minutes. They connect all five terminal with the shortest route to your stop while inside security (terminals are quoted below as TA - TE):
 - TA between gates A13 & A16 and A29 & A34
 - TB between gates B9 & B12 and B28 & B31
 - TC between gates C8 & C12 and C27 & C32
 - TD between gates D11 & D20 and D24 & D34
 - TE between gates 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.
   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.
     Getting through Security Options: 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.  CLEAR at E33: CLEAR members bypass long lines going straight to screening.

NOTE:  DFW’s renovation efforts in the last few months focused on the terminals' life extension by replacing infrastructure and making parking, check-in, security check and baggage retrieval more efficient. It also included more natural light, a more open environment, more seating, charging stations and self-service technologies.  DFW also offers a new choice of food options and adding electronics, gift shops and high-end retail shops.
As of mid-June 2017 - only Terminal B is partially closed for upgrades, while Terminal E's last project will be completed by 2018.
