Over the last 25 years, DFW has grown to become one of the
preeminent airports in the world. To remain a leader in the
aviation industry and an economic generator for North Texas,
DFW has developed a comprehensive Capital Development Program,
a program that will invest $2.6 billion into the Airport’s
infrastructure over a five-year time period.
is critical if DFW Airport plans to capitalize on the projected
growth in U.S. air travel, which is expected
to grow from its current level of 650 million enplanements
to almost one billion enplanements by the year 2009. Similarly,
international air travel is projected to almost double over
the next 10 years in the United States to almost 250 million
enplanements by the year 2010.
With the implementation of
the Airport’s $2.6 billion
Capital Development Program, DFW’s investment is estimated
to generate an additional $34 billion in economic impact
for the North Texas economy and an additional 77,000 new
jobs over the next 15 years. In short, DFW is moving forward
with its Capital Development Program to ensure that it remains
the economic generator for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
and to ensure that it remains competitive with other airports
that are already investing in their aviation infrastructure.
Capital Development Program will be completed first quarter
