Home<Airport Transit<DFW Skylink
The DFW skylink connects the five airport terminals at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the largest hub of American Airlines, each with two stations providing nearby access to all of the DFW gates (10 stops). DFW Airport opened that opened in January 13, 1974 with a make the distance the shortest from the car to the gate design. The system is 4.8 miles long and uses 64 Bombardier Innovia 200 people movers and opened in 2005 replacing the unidirectional Airtrans APM system that was built with the airport. This system is bidirectional with trains running every two minutes in each direction. The unique features of this system is that its completely within the secure area designed for connecting passengers. The line, except in the newest D-international terminal runs on the outside of the crescent shaped terminals providing some excellent vantage points from the train of the airports runways and down on planes parked at their gates. All stations have a universal design of an island platform with the stopping positions of the trains offset towards the front of the train in each station, at either end of the station escalators an elevator lead down to the main gate level, all are well signed with which direction to go to get to the respective gates. Artwork has been incorporated into the floor tiles of every station. There's is a bit of an imbalance of ridership with almost all of it between the gates served by American Airlines and American Eagle, with very low ridership to Terminal E, served by unaffiliated carriers.
