It's been a year since the pandemic changed our lives and the travel and tourism industry forever. All around the world, airlines and airports have done their part to ensure the safest travel experience as they welcome guests back. We're spotlighting our very own Dallas Fort Worth International Airport for a look at what makes them unique and what they're doing to keep safety top of mind. 

Safety protocols
In August 2020, DFW Airport became the first airport in the world to earn GBAC Star Accreditation – signifying a gold level standard of prepared facilities and demonstrating a commitment to keeping customers and employees safe.

In addition, enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures are still in effect at all areas of the airport including a Smart Restroom system, decontamination protocols, increased cleaning frequencies and more. You can read about all the things DFW Airport is doing here.

Unique features
Keep yourself entertained while you're awaiting your flight to board with an art tour, a tasty meal or a little shopping spree!

The airport has more than 30 works art from sculptures to paintings and mosaics designed by local, national and international artists. Most pieces can be seen throughout International Terminal D and Skylink stations, and you can also book a tour if your schedule permits.

Grab a bite to eat from a made-in-Dallas restaurant like Twisted Root, Shinsei or the Dallas Cowboys Club, a sports-themed bar and grill. Lastly, be sure to pick up a last-minute gift before you depart with a visit to the many shops located throughout each terminal.

Dog-friendly amenities
Travel with your pups with ease. DFW has designated pet relief areas in each of its five terminals, both inside and outside security areas. And if you and your furry friends are planning to stay overnight, they've created a pet resort – Paradise 4 Paws – that's welcome to cats and dogs and is staffed 24 hours a day for your convenience.  

When you're ready, Dallas is ready and waiting to welcome you!
