Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is anticipating the busiest summer travel season on record. The Independence Day holiday period, from Wednesday, July 3 through Monday, July 8, is projected to see around 1.5 million travelers, a 5.5 percent increase over last year.

“DFW is ready for the summer rush, and we are asking our customers to do their part to ensure a smooth travel experience by being a prepared traveler and using the many digital tools that we offer to plan ahead,” said Ken Buchanan, DFW’s Executive Vice President Customer Experience and Revenue Management. “The DFW mobile app and website allow customers to pre-book their parking, check security screening wait times, order grab-and-go food in the terminals and much more. By planning ahead for your trip, you can reduce both wait times and stress.”

The busiest days for the travel period are expected to be July 6, July 7, and July 8, with more than 270,000 passengers each day. The top destinations this summer include Cancun, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, and New York City.

DFW encourages travelers to arrive at least two hours prior to departure. Garages at Terminals C and D tend to fill up faster than other garages. If C and D garages are full, those flying American Airlines can park, check in, check their bags, and go through security in either Terminals A or B. All travelers can use the Skylink train to move throughout all five terminals.
