Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has announced that plans for the renovation and expansion of its Terminal C have now been approved by the airport’s board.
The $2 billion project will transform the 50-year-old facility and will provide expanded gate capacity in both Terminal C and Terminal A to address future growth and continue the airport’s commitment to enhance the customer experience.
“The goal is to transform Terminal C, which has stood in service at the airport since the early 70s, into a modern terminal with the latest technologies and infrastructure,” said DFW Airport CEO Sean Donohue. “DFW is providing for the anticipated growth of our partner, American Airlines, while also elevating the customer experience to meet the needs of the modern traveller.”
DFW has several ongoing or recently completed infrastructure projects including the High C gates renovation, the Terminal D South gates expansion, the opening of a state-of-the-art Integrated Operations Center and the upgrade and renovations on runways and taxiways. According to the airport, these projects have supported more than 4,000 jobs in the past 18 months.
The renovations will be done in phases to minimise customer disruption and inconvenience. Expected to be completed in 2026, the projects will update approximately 850,000 square feet of terminal space.
