The queue line for rideshares is a little more crowded.

On Monday, a new rideshare company, Wingz, launched service at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and Dallas Love Field. Wingz said it offers pre-booked, flat rate services from airports for business and leisure travelers.

“We’re excited to usher in a new era of customer-focused ground transportation across Texas and introduce travelers to an unprecedented personal airport transportation experience,” said Wingz chief executive Chris Brandon in a statement.

On its website, Wingz said it costs $48 to travel from downtown Fort Worth to DFW Airport for up to three passengers with carry-ons. A trip to downtown Dallas from DFW Airport costs $42.

Customers can also book the service through online travel site, Expedia, which has invested in the rideshare company.

The company is competing with popular rideshare companies, Uber and Lyft, who currently offer services at both North Texas airports.

Wingz announced its Texas expansion this week, also adding service in Austin and at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental and Hobby airports.
