Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is the airport of the international level. It is the busiest one in Texas and is among the ten busiest airports in the world. It is located roughly halfway between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, and owes its name to the latter. The passenger traffic of the airfield amounts to about 70 million people per year. The airport occupies a substantial area. It is the second largest airport of the United States. It encompasses 7 runways. The airport started functioning in 1974 as a regional one, but changed its status to international in 1985. The automated high-speed Skylink train runs between the 5 current terminals (A, B, C, D, and E). The capacity of the airport allows for its expansion to 13 terminals in the future.
