Positioned just over 34 kilometres from Dallas’ downtown district, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is the primary international airport serving the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex area in the southern state of Texas. It is the country’s largest hub for American Airlines, which is headquartered near the airport. Driving to the airport from either Texas or Fort Worth can often take up to an hour, especially during rush hour, so it’s strongly advised that you give yourself plenty of time.
