  • Air Terminals

The D/FW [Dallas-Fort Worth] "loop" terminal. The now-famous D/FW loop terminal concept was developed because of the importance of the automobile as a means of transportation in Texas. Passengers can indeed park their cars inside the half-circle terminal buildings and walk immediately to their check-in point.


  • Aérogares

L'aérogare semi-circulaire. L'aérogare de forme semi-circulaire, selon le modèle désormais bien connu de Dallas/Fort Worth, est la conséquence d'une nécessaire adaptation à l'automobile, qui joue un rôle essentiel au Texas comme moyen de transport. Il est de fait que les voyageurs peuvent ranger leur voiture à l'intérieur des hémicycles et à proximité immédiate du hall où ils doivent accomplir leurs formalités d'enregistrement.
