Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport is planning for the busiest summer in its 41-year history.

The airport expects more than 18 million passengers during the 2015 summer travel season. As a result, D/FW Airport is adding some new programs, such as discounted parking rates and a new “Sunny Service Days” program.

“As 2015 shapes up to be our busiest summer season ever with more than 18 million travelers expected, it is most important to deliver what customers are coming to expect at D/FW and that is a customer service-focused, travel experience,” said Sean Donohue, chief executive officer at D/FW Airport. “We are eager to celebrate our customers this summer, and showcase the many new programs and amenities designed specifically for them.”

Effective now through August 31, passengers can park for seven days for $55 (less than $8 per day) at one of the airport’s two Express Parking sites, located on the North and South ends of the airport.

D/FW Airport will also host “Sunny Service Days” throughout the summer with dedicated customer engagement teams responding to customer input. The airport asks customers to “check in” and share their experiences at D/FW Airport using the hashtag #DFWSummer.

Later this summer, D/FW Airport will comple the third and final phase of the Terminal A parking structure, which will be the largest project completed to date under the DFW Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP). When complete, Terminal A Parking will be one of the largest parking facilities in Texas, with 7,700 vehicle spaces on five levels and a state-of-the-art parking guidance system.

Several new shops and restaurants have recently opened or will soon open at D/FW Airport, including in Terminal A: TUMI (Gate A18), XpresSpa (Gate A25), Swarovski (Gate A24), La Madeleine (Gate A25), Brookstone (Gate A25), and in Terminal B: Artizan Fashions (Gate B28), Soybu (Gate B28), and the Belgian Beer Café (Gate B32).
