Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has completed construction for its Northeast End-Around Taxiway (EAT).

This achievement makes DFW the only airport in the US with an end-around taxiway at both ends of a runway.

End-around taxiways enhance safety by allowing aircraft to taxi around active runways rather than waiting to cross them. By reducing aircraft stoppages, the taxiways increase operational efficiency, generate cost savings for aircraft operations, and save passenger travel time.  On average, end-around taxiways help decrease taxi times by four minutes as the aircraft moves from the gate to the runway or runway to the gate.

Khaled Naja, EVP Infrastructure and Development said:

At DFW, we are focused on the future. While we continue to evolve, our commitment to our customers and our community hasn’t changed. We have invested not just in our infrastructure, but in our future, ensuring you have the best experience on your journey through DFW Airport.

The Northeast EAT project is a key part of DFW’s ten-year infrastructure capital plan, which includes enhancing or rebuilding the airport’s runways, roadways, and bridges.

As part of a package funded by the US Department of Transportation, the end-around taxiway project focuses on improving infrastructure to enhance the passenger experience and safety at DFW.
