Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is getting a bit bigger.

The airport's board approved a $140 million contract on Thursday, Aug. 5, for the construction of nine new gates in terminals A and C, an expansion project to add capacity to the massive airport. The action was first reported by Alan Scaia, a reporter at KRLD in Dallas.

The gates will primarily benefit American Airlines, which has its headquarters and largest hub at DFW. Earlier plans to build a sixth terminal at the airport were put on hold as the pandemic decimated travel demand around the U.S.

Even so, DFW has been in expansion mode in recent months, coinciding with a rebound of domestic and regional travel demand.

Recently, the airport began using four brand-new gates at Terminal D, its primary international terminal, as part of a $160 million improvement project.
