Dallas Fort Worth airport from the airplane window

Dallas Fort Worth airport from the airplane window. When you’re schlepping from terminal to terminal it feels like the biggest airport in the world.

Everything is bigger in Texas. Even the airports. Take Dallas Fort Worth for example. DFW is the biggest airport in the world.* In fact, it is bigger than some countries. ** And the Skylink that moves passengers from terminal to terminal is the longest airport tram system in the universe.***

* Not true. It just feels like it. DFW airport is the fourth busiest airport in the world in terms of aircraft movements, and the eight busiest in the world in terms of passenger traffic. At 17,000-plus acres, it is the second biggest airport in the Unites States.

** Actually true. DFW airport is bigger than five of the world’s smallest countries, including Monaco, Vatican City and San Marino. It has its own zip code, police department and fire station.

*** There may be bigger trams in the next galaxy, but DFW’s Skylink is planet Earth’s largest airport train system.
