The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has decided to hire a consultant and spend up to $1.2 million for studying the feasibility of a premium travel lounge at Terminal D for hosting international travelers.

The consultant firm would be asked to undertake a study and review the lounge offerings at various airports worldwide for international customers and evaluate possible partners for running a premium lounge at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Sean Donohue, CEO of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, acknowledged that the airport’s current lounge is quite competitive on domestic front. He however said that the DFW airport is simply not competitive when viewed from a global and international perspective. There is a need therefore for the airport to step up its game and stay ahead in competition.

The DFW airport is presently serving even more international first class as well as business class customers than ever before. This is because of new Middle East and Australian carriers, and also new flights to Asian destinations.

Donohue said that the DFW airport is likely to see further increase of international travelers with Emirates Airline and Qantas Airways adding double-decker Airbus A380 aircrafts on DFW routes this fall.
Sharon McCloskey, Vice President of Marketing at DFW airport, remarked that the existing lounges at the airport are nearly close to capacity and are unable to provide the same amenities and services that are currently available to premium customers at various other international airports world over.

There are many lounges in Terminal D at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport serving first class and business class customers. These are however operated by different airlines such as American Airlines and others.
