New concessions and a parking guidance system for Terminal D opened just in time for passengers traveling through Dallas/Fort Worth Airport for the holidays.
The airport said it expects 3.2 million passengers from Dec. 17 to Jan. 4, the busiest holiday travel season ever for DFW and a 2.4 percent increase from last year.
“As we wish everyone a happy holiday season and safe travels, we also want to show our customers the progress we’ve been making with our terminal improvements that are creating a better travel experience for everyone,” DFW Chief Executive Sean Donohue said.
Since the Thanksgiving travel season, the airport has completed a parking guidance system for the Terminal D garage that has green lights over open spaces and red lights over occupied spaces, making it easier for travelers to find spots.

It also opened seven new concessions in Terminals A, D and E, including Wild Bleu Martini Bar, Genghis Grill, Lick and the NBC-5 Travel Store.
Porters will be available at parking garages at Terminals A, C and E for several hours on Dec. 20, 27 and 28 to help transport luggage. As part of its “Cheer Starts Here!” campaign, launched at Thanksgiving, the terminals have giant walk-in snow globes for photos.
The airport is in the middle of a multiyear, $2.7 billion terminal renovation program. This fall, it completed renovations at 44 gates at Terminals A, B and E and at checkpoints and ticketing areas.
