Renovations Complete at DFW’s Terminal A
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport announced the completion of renovations at Terminal A of the airport. All gates are now open, and the project included parking, ticketing, security, and concession areas.
As part of the renovations, 26 of the terminal’s 32 gates were refurbished, as well as two baggage claim areas. Three of the terminal’s security checkpoints were expanded as part of the project, and additional self-service ticket kiosks were added.
The terminal had new backlit LED signage installed, as well as energy-efficient glass windows and new Terrazzo flooring. As part of the project , the architects raised the ceilings in the terminal to make it more spacious. Other enhancements include four new high-capacity elevators for passengers to commute between concourse levels.
Terminal A also features 50% more concession space for shops and restaurants, with new dining options that include the Salt Lick Barbeque; the Dallas Cowboys Club; Lorena Garcia Tapas y Cocina; and Ling and Louise’s Asian fusion restaurant. New retail options were also added, including Brookstone, Tumi, iStore, Teavana, and Gepetto’s Toy Store.
A new parking garage was built for the terminal, and features overhead LED lights that signal available parking spots.
The project was part of the airport’s TRIP (Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program), a seven year-long renovation of the airport’s four terminals, which were originally opened in 1974. Work is still being done on the airport’s Terminals B and E, and is expected to be completed within a year.
