American Airlines, which is based near the airport, has its largest hub here. In 2020, it will be the world’s third busiest airport in terms of aircraft movements and the fourth busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic. It is the United States’ ninth busiest international gateway and Texas’ second busiest international gateway. American Airlines’ DFW hub is the world’s and the United States’ second-largest single airline hub, trailing only Delta’s Atlanta hub. Until 2005, the airport served as a hub for Delta Air Lines.

DFW, which spans parts of Dallas and Tarrant counties and includes parts of Irving, Euless, Grapevine, and Coppell, is roughly midway between the large cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.
