Did you Know that Almost 63 Million Passengers traveled through Dallas/Fort Worth Airport this Year. The Most in the Airport's 40-year history. Growth in International Passengers from new Flights to Destinations including Doha, Qatar, Hong Kong and Shanghai helped push high traffic through. DFW spent $649.8 million for the 2014 year. It also returned $28.6 million to it's airline tenants through landing fee and terminal rent reductions, 30 percent more than the Airport returned last year. Now as the Airport is preparing for the crowded Holiday Travel Season and the Winter weather that could strand thousands of passengers at DFW. In a Briefing to the Airport board's operations committee Tuesday, staff members said DFW has spent an additional $7 million on Snow and Ice removal equipment this year to prepare for the winter ahead. Airport manager Lisa Hughes said the Goal is to improve runway clearing times by 50 percent. Last Year DFW experienced 8 Winter-weather events including a December storm that dropped 1.25 inches of ice on the Airport's runways and roads. As a result, the Airport exceeded its weather budget in 2013-2014 by $2.67 million. "In December Event, they were seeing 45 minutes to an hour for a single runway, just to get the runway passable for Aircraft." Airport staffers said the New Equipment will allow them to pre-treat runways and roads better, keeping ice and snow from bonding with the pavement and making it easier to clear off the surface. DFW has also improved it's communications plan about concessions and other amenities available for passengers stuck in the terminal during a winter storm. Separately, the Airport finance committee approved a 3 year Air service incentive program to provide marketing funds and free landing fees to Airlines that add new flights. The program, through 2017, will provide incentive dollars to Airlines that change an existing route to a larger Aircraft that results in 30 percent net increase in seats in a market that is at least 5,000 miles from DFW. Safe Travels to all in 2014.
