Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport has launched its official mobile app for smartphones. The app provides the latest information and updates regarding flights, parking, shops, restaurants and airport services. The DFW Airport mobile app is now available as a free download at the iTunes App Store, Google’s Android Play Store and BlackBerry App World.

“The DFW Airport mobile app represents a breakthrough in the way our customers can navigate DFW Airport,” said Jeff Fegan, Chief Executive Officer of DFW. “This is the first airport app that notifies DFW travellers about gate changes through a push notification, and it can also help you determine parking availability or find a bite to eat in one easy solution.”

The app’s push notification feature is said to be a first for airport-developed apps, notifying passengers who request information about changes to flight details. The new app contains a variety of customer-requested features, including flight information and tracking; flight and gate updates with alert ‘push’ notifications; parking availability, locations and rates; restaurant and shopping locations; and a ‘Within five minutes of my gate’ feature highlighting restaurants and shopping options located nearest your gate.

“The DFW Airport mobile app has everything a passenger needs to make a trip through DFW faster and more efficient,” explained Ken Buchanan, Executive Vice President for Revenue Management. “And for those road warriors who need to maximise their time, the “Within five minutes of my gate” feature lets you know about the shops and restaurants that are closest to you.”
